It can be easy getting your kids stoked about Christmas or Halloween, but Easter is a little more challenging. If you’re having trouble explaining why the Easter Bunny comes to deliver decorated eggs and baskets full of chocolate goodies, check out one of the best Easter books for kids.
These picture books explain Easter traditions in a fun, engaging way. Whether you’re celebrating your baby’s first-ever Easter or trying to stoke your little one’s interest in reading, we’ve got the books for you, including board books and books meant for kids up to age 10. They’ll get your kids excited about the huge egg scavenger hunt you’ve planned or to get into those frilly dress clothes for photos, a family brunch or church.
The books we picked feature classic characters, so classic, in fact, that one or two might have been a part of your childhood. Everyone could use some nostalgia on Easter morning. Your kids might recognize the characters from other book series they enjoy or even PBS. No one can pass up a Pete the Cat book, for example.
Easter books allow you to start a new tradition: Watching your kids pull a new book out of their baskets each Easter morning, then you can read it together as a family. The Easter Bunny only visits for so many years, so you might as well go all in on the years that you do have on this floppy-eared fellow’s route.
Check out the 10 Easter books we recommended below. They’re highly rated and will arrive at your doorstep before Easter.
