Mollie, a six-year-old girl, is excited about the Easter celebration and really wants to know who invented it and what it's all about. There are questions popping up in her head about this subject, and she soon meets Grandma for answers. From here begins a conversation that is so fun and enlightening.

What Easter Really Means is a children's story written by Darrylynn Fabrizius. I appreciate the drive behind writing this story. Just like some of the author's grandchildren, there are several Christian children who do not really understand what Easter is. They think it's all about eating, drinking, and having lots of fun. Well, these are great ways of making Easter Day more memorable, but there is something deeper that made this day even possible, and that should be our major focus.

So this book does a great job of teaching children how Easter came to be and for whose honor it's being observed. The story is very engaging. It is crafted in a way to make readers feel present and involved in the conversation between Mollie and Grandma. There are even spaces left for the readers to introduce themselves and also share the outcome of their conversations with their parents and grandparents about what Easter is all about.

The story also notes the significance of Easter for our eternal fate and destination as Christians. The illustrations, done by Jason Velazquez, are great and add depth to the story. The language is simple, making it easy for children to read and understand the information shared in this story. The absence of grammatical errors made my reading smooth and memorable.

I rate this book five out of five stars for the easy-to-understand explanations of what Easter truly is and for the exceptional editing. I found no issues in this book, so there is no reason to deduct any stars from the rating. What Easter Really Means is recommended for Christian readers aged six to eight years.

The premise of Mollie's curiosity about Easter and her conversation with Grandma to understand its deeper significance is appealing. Your appreciation for the author's drive to educate children about the true meaning of Easter is noted. The focus on going beyond the surface-level celebrations and emphasizing the religious significance of the day is considered a strong point of the book.
