Dandi Daley Mackall has written another story for our young listeners that explains legends behind Christian symbols or traditions. I so enjoyed this legend of the Robin and how he got his red breast all tied in to Easter and Christ on the cross. It's an Easter story you can share with your little ones that shows real compassion and faith using nature and the tender relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter. The illustrations by Richard Cowdrey are also tender and colorful adding much to the storyline. This would be a fantastic read aloud in a Sunday School or Christian school setting. I guarantee after reading this, you will look with new eyes at a Robin.
