I can’t believe Easter is upon us! Somehow, the whole season snuck up on me this year! I still need to get Easter baskets ready! One thing I love including in the boys’ Easter baskets are fun spring/Easter-themed books! So, our contributor Anna, from Learn Like A Mom, is here to share 10 great Easter books for kids! Perfect for Easter baskets or just fun reading around the holiday!
Baby Touch and Feel Easter Bunny and Easter (a bright baby touch and feel book) are both books ideal for very young children. They have various pictures that incorporate a tactile experience in a sturdy book for the youngest of readers to interact with. I like the first one because it is larger, but the second one is great for travel because it will fit right in the diaper bag or a purse for entertainment on the go!
A Very Busy Bunny by Barbie Heit and Illustrated by Monika Suska is also carried around with ease because it has a little handle! The book is in the shape of an Easter Basket! Readers can enjoy the rhymes and learn colors all while watching the Easter Bunny hide the eggs!
Hoppy Clubhouse Easter by Marcy Kelman and Illustrated by Loter, Inc. is a board book filled with action from Mickey Mouse and all of his loveable Disney friends!
The final board book on this list is The Easter Story by Patricia A. Pingry and Illustrated by Mary Ann Utt. It is a Christian story! This book tells the story of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and rising again on Easter Morning.
Also called The Easter Story by Tracy Harrast and Illustrated by Terry Workman, this Peek-a-Bible, Lift-the-Flap Book walks readers through events between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. It’s a bit more detailed than the board book mentioned above.
Biscuit and the little girl are running all over the place when they enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt together in Happy Easter, Biscuit! by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and Pictures by Pat Schories. Children can have fun lifting flaps to try and find eggs throughout the book too!
Max’s Easter Surprise (Based on Nick Jr’s animated series Max & Ruby) has been a favorite around here. Big Brother keeps asking for this book and just today opened it up and started telling the story himself. I can’t tell if he likes the egg decorating, the Easter Parade, or Grandma coming to visit the most!
The Berenstain Bears and the Real Easter Eggs by Stan & Jan Berenstain is (of course) full of characters from my own childhood and my children love Beartown just as much today as I did back then! Brother Bear and Sister Bear are in for a treat during this year’s giant Easter Egg Hunt!
Colored Eggs for Jesse is “The REAL Easter Story with a guide to make a set of eggs for your family” by Linda Hacon Winwood and Illustrated by Dr. Tony Casino. Jesse and his grandmother work their way through eighteen colored eggs, all while learning about the Easter Story. I actually know Linda Hacon Winwood and not only is she talented, but she is loving, honest, diligent, and encouraging!
