Easter baskets are supposed to be filled with candy, right? Well, yeah sure, you can give your toddler candy if you want. But you can also stock your Easter basket with books! Here are some great picks for Easter books as well as books about bunnies that can be read all year long.
We got this beautiful picture book in one of our Bookroo subscription boxes. It’s not about Easter so you can enjoy it any time of the year. It’s a book that I love to read aloud because of the way the words flow. The illustrations are gorgeous too.
Lately, Toot has been obsessed with Peppa Pig. I’m getting her this book for her basket this year since we don’t have any other Peppa books.
Remember the mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie? (One of my favorites when I was a kid) He has an Easter book too!
Of course, Llama Llama Red Pajama has his own Easter book too! Have you seen the new Netflix show? Llama llama is becoming very popular!
We got this Duck & Goose book last year just after Easter. It was in the bookshop at our library for only 50 cents! I love finding cheap books. This one is really cute, and she loves Duck & Goose.
This is a board book with a bunny version of the Itsy Bitsy Spider song!
“The itsy bitsy bunny was hopping up the trail
Down fell the baskets past his tiny tail
Out came his friends to help him on his way.
For the itsy bitsy bunny was planning Easter day.”
What toddler doesn’t love peek-a-boo?
8. Dear Bunny…
This is another book that isn’t Easter-centric but has a bunny as the main focus of the story. It’s gives a message of learning to be grateful for the things and people we have in our lives.
9. Yoga Bunny
This bunny can teach your toddler yoga. He tries to teach his friends in the forest but they’re all too busy! They need to learn to slow down and relax with yoga. There are some simple yoga poses your toddler can try too.
A classic Little Golden Book for your toddler’s Easter basket.
One of our favorite Easter books by the same people who did How to Catch a Leprechaun.
“I’ve been working long and hard
with all my peeps and crew.
We’ve made the eggs, and now I’m here
to bring them all to you!”
This Easter book is by the same people who did The Biggest Pumpkin Ever and it’s an inexpensive paperback that will delight your toddler. The mice learn about cooperation!
This is a story about how a bunny became the Easter Bunny! This is probably one of the best Easter books you can find.
I love Ollie books. This is a cute little board book about a little gosling and all of his emotions about Easter. He gets impatient while waiting (sound like anyone you know? lol) and then experiences the pure joy of Easter.
15. Hop! Hop!
We have the Toot Toot book for obvious reasons. lol These books by Leslie Patricelli are cute and short. I like short books sometimes. Especially when she asks for “one more book” 15 minutes after her bedtime.
