Painted eggs, bunnies, newborn chicks, lambs, white lilies, new clothes. All of these stand for Easter just as angels and reindeer stand for Christmas.
Where and how did the Easter symbols originate? What do they mean? And how have they survived for hundreds, even thousands of years?

In a text filled with anecdotes, sayings, and bits of verse, Edna Barth traces the history of the Easter symbols and shows how they reflect feelings shared by people throughout the world. For the symbols represent hope, joy in living, and wonder at the miracle of new life. And these are universal emotions.

Warmly written and illustrated with two-color drawings by Ursula Arndt, this is a book to be discovered and read with pleasure by young readers of all faiths.
