I'm appealing for a brainstorm session among my brainiac readers, here.
My wife has observed that a lot of effort goes into instructional activities leading up to Christmas, but not so much to Easter. There's a wealth of material available for the former. Some uses narrative format (i.e. Jotham's Journey, One Wintry Night [gorgeous illustrations]), some focus more directly on Scriptural readings (the various Jesse tree books), or combinations of articles and readings and hymns and Scriptures (Focus on the Family had a good one, title escapes me).
What is there, equivalent, for Easter—which, this year, falls on April 8?
I've done Scripture readings leading up to it, focusing on atonement. We did a Christian seder once. What do you do? Do you have a book or books you've found helpful?
One caveat: the "Easter's just about Ashtoreth/Astarte!" crowd can sit this one out, please.
