Fill somebunny’s basket with these Easter books!



Can you believe that Easter is almost here. While most people are thinking of Easter Eggs and of course candy, here in our family we love books. From the day that Madison was born, actually before she was born, I already had a library of books that I wanted her to read. Her very first books that we read together were Pat the Bunny and Goodnight Moon. Both have been staples in my kids library as newborns and ones I always recommend to other parents. Well with Easter on the way I also have a few suggestions for those Easter baskets. You can nourish the body with treats and nourish your little ones minds with these delightful Easter books for kids.


Too Many Carrots by Katy Hudson (ages 3-5)

Rabbit loves carrots.  Maybe a little too much. In fact, his carrots are crowding him out of his cozy burrow, and when his friends offer to help - that's just asking for trouble. This charming and lovingly illustrated picture teaches children the value of friendships over material possessions, and features a range of engaging and delightful animal friends including a rabbit, a tortoise, a squirrel and a beaver.


Little Bo Peep and Her Bad, Bad Sheep: A Mother Goose Hullabaloo by A.L. Wegwerth (ages 4-8)
Illustrated by Luke Flowers

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep … as usual. What starts out as a simple nursery rhyme quickly derails into mayhem. Bo Peep can’t find her sheep, but readers will, and they’ll be coaching Bo from the sidelines as they watch her mischievous sheep swiping mittens from kittens, toppling Humpty Dumpty, and trampling Mary’s garden. Dozens of beloved Mother Goose characters have cameos … and all have run-ins with the sheep. Readers will giggle all the way to the end when at last they can finish the rhyme, as the sheep (sheepishly) come home, wagging their tails, of course.


Honey Bunny by Charles Reasoner (ages 1-3)

What's Honey Bunny up to on this nice spring day? Find out in this sweet die-cut board book. A simple rhyme and soft illustrations make this a great choice for welcoming spring.


Peep Peep by Charles Reasoner (ages 1-3)

Hooray...it's spring and chick has hatched! Celebrate the newness of spring with this board book, full of fun rhyming text and charming illustrations.


Dessert Designer: Creations You Can Make and Eat! by Dana Meachen Rau (ages 8-14)

Design and decorate like a pro with no baking skills required! Using pre-made cupcakes, cookies, and cake, kids of all ages will learn fun tips and tricks.


Let's discuss: Is there a special Easter book that you read along with your kids?

  7. They're perfect! Especially since we do love Easter and we celebrate it, but in a secular way since we're like 75% Jewish. These are fantastic Easter Basket additions.

  8. Little Bo Peep and the Bad Sheep - I have to get that one to read to my little guy. We always include books as gifts in his basket. I need to go through our Easter books to see what we have so we can add to the collection this year.

    1. The library collection never ends, believe me. I'm about to donate quite a bit to the Library because we have so much and Madison has outgrown a lot of them. Wish you were nearby so you can have them for your little one. BTW Goodnight Moon should have been the first you picked up. :)

    1. Awesome! It's a rather simple book so you should both enjoy it.

  15. I think giving kids Easter books in their basket is a great idea. It decreases the amount of chocolate that you fill it with and allows them to sharpen their literacy skills.

    1. I agree with you 100%. I am not a big fan of candy so prefer this option a whole lot better.

  16. I agree, Easter is mostly about Eggs & Candies & this is a good idea to have those beautil basket filled with some wonderful books that could help kids learn something more about the Easter. With some great looking illustrations these could be great choices for my kids as well.

    1. I am so tired of everything being about candy, it's great to have a bit of variety. We wonder why America has the stigma of overweight kids/families when we promote candy the way we do. I'm all about the books.

      Delete
  17. Those are some nice books to fill in a kids Easter basket. I don't know why we glorify candy as much as we do for every holiday. It's time someone started thinking about something else and books are great.

    1. I'm not so sure why candy is so heavily promoted either for holidays but I think they also need to start focusing on something else as well.

  18. The book about friendship over material things sounds fun. Love that they send that message through a rabiit and his carrots. :) I like holiday themed books and these all look cute.
