Best Easter Books For Kids

The Easter Bunny is on his way, so now is the perfect time to give a sweet Easter gift for children about this very special holiday. Here is a list of some favorite books from The Lollipop Book Club:

The Easterville Miracle: (My personal favorite!)

A little boy named Sam cannot understand all of the fuss that occurs in his town every year at Easter. The new outfits, the colorful decorations, the chick-shaped candies all seem so silly to him, especially since no one in his town of Easterville can answer his question as to what it is all about. With the help of an ancient man who live atop a hill, Sam finally learns the meaning of the holiday.

The Dumb Bunnies' Easter:

Laugh out loud with the dumb bunny family as they decorate their tree, prepare the turkey, and wait in anticipation of the Easter Bunny’s arrival…on December 24th! The silly illustrations and the ridiculous behavior of the confused bunnies will tickle the funny bone of every niece and nephew.

The Bunny Who Found Easter:

A sad, lonely bunny is in search of other creatures like himself. An owl informs him that there are always lots of rabbits at Easter, so he embarks on a journey that takes him through summer, fall, and winter in search of this place. Both the bunny and a mouse who has been following his every step ultimately find love and companionship when the special time of year finally arrives.

Humbug Rabbit:

While Granny Rabbit is aboveground busily decorating eggs for Easter, Father Rabbit is down below in the burrow informing his little bunnies that there is no such thing as the Easter Bunny. An unwitting cat turns Father Rabbit into a believer again after he sneakily hides the decorated eggs in the rabbits’ underground home. The little bunnies have fun discovering the beautiful eggs on Easter day.

Rechenka's Eggs:

Every year, old lady Babushka wins first place in an Easter festival for her beautifully painted Ukrainian eggs. After many hours of labor, she is ready to showcase her artwork again. Then she discovers an injured goose near her home. She takes in the animal and nurses it back to health, but the bird accidentally breaks her eggs when it spreads its wings to fly. Babushka is devastated until the goose miraculously lays colorful eggs, winning another prize for her caregiver on Easter.
