FAVORITE EASTER CHILDREN’S BOOKS

Share

One of my guilty pleasures is buying (too many) children’s books! Reading to your child not only supports language & cognitive development, but also provides a wonderful opportunity for bonding.

My child certainly has his favorites that he wants me to read to him over and over again. Every month, I love to switch up the books on his shelves. This Easter picture books list has books about egg hunts, adventures, bunnies, and of course, lots of holiday fun!

Please note: My son is currently 4 years old, so this book selection is primarily suitable for toddlers.

YOU’RE MY LITTLE HONEY BUNNY

You’re My Little Honey Bunny by Natalie Marshall is a sweet and colorful rhyming book. The shaped cut-outs and raised elements are perfect for little ones. Even toddlers will appreciate the cute way that each page describes a parent’s love for their child. We love all the books from this series! [Board Book]

THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR’S EAST EGG HUNT

The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Easter Egg Hunt by Eric Carle invites readers to lift the flaps on every page to help The Very Hungry Caterpillar hunt for Easter eggs. Along the way they will also meet some friendly farmyard animals. With this book, children can practice indentifying animals and the flaps are also great for fine motor skills. We love Eric Carle and the The Very Hungry Caterpillar so we were excited to add this book to our collection. [Board Book]
