No Eggs for Easter
About the Book
For many, many years, the symbol of the Easter egg and the Easter bunny have been conjoined and have served as icons of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Like the sign of the fish representing early Christian faith, the egg and a baby chicken emerging from the egg signify Jesus Christ’s rising from his tomb.
Through story and illustrations, this picture book for children by Roy Green, explores the possible consequences of over-commercialism, environmental impact, and the loss of family traditions surrounding Easter. Through the tale of a cast of kind and caring animal characters, it offers an alternative interpretation of how the Easter egg became the symbol of resurrection.
