Book review-The Legend of the Sand Dollar By: Chris Auer

The Legend of the Sand Dollar
An Inspirational Story of Hope for Easter
By: Chris Auer
Illustrated By:  Richard Cowdrey

Disclaimer:  I received this Book from the publisher, Zonderkidz for free to read and review.  I was not required to give a favorable review only an honest review.  All thoughts and comments in this review are my own.

Eight-year-old Kerry loves the ocean, and every few years she along with her parents and sister, Margaret go to visit Aunt Jane and Cousin Jack who live near the beach.

This year Margaret and Kerry were going alone, which made Kerry very sad.  Cousin Jack and Kerry took the boat to the beach where they found a sand dollar.  Jack patiently answered all of Kerry’s questions and then explained that even though the sand dollar isn’t real money, it still has value because it tells the greatest story of all—it tells the story of Jesus’ birth and the Easter story. 

Once you read this story to your children they will never look at a sand dollar without remember this story. 

The illustrations are so vivid and beautiful they are sure to keep even the youngest child turning the pages. 

This is a hard-cover book with a beautifully illustrated dust jacket.  This is a great bed-time story and would make a great gift for the Easter season.
