REVIEW: This is a beautiful full color paperback book with a glossy finish that illustrates a powerful story kids will have fun reading and having it read to them.  This book will appeal to ages 12 and under. This book starts out on the Saturday morning before Easter. The family is busy getting breakfast ready and talking about what they were going to do to celebrate Easter.

Hardy, Anastasia and their cousin Pascal were excited at what their parents had planned to create a very special Easter egg hunt. Their Easter egg hunt would be at night with eggs that glowed in the dark. The kids ran up to the attic to find the eggs. They uncover a treasure chest and open it; an egg rises from the chest and starts to glow, shake and spin. They all can’t believe their eyes.

The first scroll they encounter is one from Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfishness, but in humility value others above yourself.”

Note with that, “Seek my treasure let truth be heard. I send my son to spread the word, and free my people who’d been chained go now! “The kids realized they were talking about Pharaoh and Moses. After they stopped reading the egg started to glow brighter and brighter. An amazing thing happens. They are transported back to the time of Moses.

They look around to uncover the reason for their travels when they find another scroll. They keep going on adventures finding different scrolls uncovering messages along the way. Until they get to John 1:4-5 “In him was life and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness. And the darkness has not overcome it.”

The meaning of Easter comes to light in many ways for these kids. The exciting thing about this story is the fact that you can purchase Glow-in-the-Dark Egglo Easter eggs and create a memorable event for your family.  The story can come to life and will drive the meaning of Easter to their mind and hearts.

There is a CD and DVD of this story book; plus Egglo glow in Dark Easter Egg Hunt Event curriculum and downloadable scripture verses, coloring pages, activities, crafts and ideas to make this Easter celebration memorable for you whole family.
