lamb, I grew up on lamb, and now my husband (who had never had it) favors having dinner with my side of the family. Usually the lamb is accompanied by roast new potatoes, asparagus and fresh baked bread.

Today's Egg-stravaganza Giveaway:

Easter is the perfect time of year to give your child a new Bible or Bible story book. I recently reviewed The Classic Bible Storybook, which brought back great memories form my own childhood and my fist Bible that my Mom gave to me. The art work from my first Bible was used once again in this new "Classic Bible Storybook" How I love nostalgic things.

This book is hot of the press as it was Just released from Tyndale Kids The " Classic Bible Storybook" by Kenneth N. Taylor. A nostalgic collection of more than 120 Bible stories and art taken from Taylor's Bible Story Book and The Living Bible Story Book. Not only does Classic Bible Storybook present the truths of the Bible in language that is understandable to kids, it will also generate fond memories for parents and grandparents who remember the popular Hook art and the stories written by Ken Taylor. The stories sound like they are being told by a kind grandfather to his grandchildren. Each story has 3 or 4 comprehension questions to help children's understanding of Biblical concepts. Reading/hearing these stories will help young ones love stories of the Bible and may help adults fall in love again with God's Word.

24/7 MOMS and Tyndale Kids are giving away one Classic Bible Storybook by Kenneth N. Taylor. To enter for your chance to win, enter your name and email address in the box below you will be signed up for today's giveaway as well as be added to the 24/7 MOMS E-list (if you are not already a 24/7 MOMS subscriber).
