The Parable of the Lily written by Liz Curtis Higgs is a great book to do at the end of winter or at the beginning of spring. This story teaches children about forgiveness with the emphasis on what Christ did for us (EASTER!)
The Homeschoolshare site has a lesson plan/unit study that goes along with this story.
I like this story because it has many lessons to teach:
- Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13)
- Thankfulness for the sacrificial, atoning work of Christ on the cross
- and many more!
