I've had a number of emails recently asking if I could post an updated book list for Lent and Easter, similar to my Advent & Christmas Booklist. Even though we don't have nearly as many books for this Liturgical season, our collection has continued to grow over the past 12 years. I haven't had a chance to go through and highlight our favorites, but at least this gives you a little closer peek at what is in our book baskets.
Update: I went through the list with the kids and we highlighted some of our favorites in bold and added an *asterisk.
