Easter Books are a great gift idea to put in your favorite little one’s basket. Lots of family memories will be created as you are reading the books together. We always put two books into our kids baskets each year.  One is an Easter themed book, and the other is a book that we know they will love.

The Best Easter Books for Kids

Since Easter will be here before we know it, I thought I would update our Spring book list so you can start planning ahead. This year Easter will definitely have a unique spin, so we have to be thinking outside of the box.

Easter is not only a religious holiday, it’s also the holiday that marks that Spring is officially here! Besides filling the kids’ baskets with hollow chocolate bunnies, sweet jelly beans, and bubbles, how about adding a few books into the baskets too?  The great thing about books is that you can add in the titles and genres that each child will love! 

I’ve put together a fun list of Easter books that cover everything from friendship and adventures to baby animals and of course bunnies!

Must Reads for Babies and Toddlers  


I absolutely love these types of books!  When my kids were little, I loved doing this interactive book with them! Then as they grew older, they were able to do the books themselves, so it was great to watch them improve not only their fine motor skills but their imagination as well. 

Share your love with this huggable finger puppet book: The sweetly reassuring stories in this brand-new series celebrate all things a parent’s arms can do for their child, from playing games to sharing a treat and—best of all—showing their love with a hug.

• Adorable illustrations and two plush finger puppet arms make for a cozy, interactive reading experience for babies and their loved ones
• The affectionate story line inspires the bond between family and baby and encourages relaxing moments spent together
• Book makes a sweet gift for new and soon-to-be parents


Where Are Baby’s Easter Eggs?: A Lift-the-Flap Book 

Lift-the-flap books are another type of book that is great for toddlers!  You can start off reading the books to them and showing them what is inside the flap.  As they grow older, they can lift the flaps by themselves and use their own imagination telling the story.

Where are Baby’s Easter Eggs, by Karen Katz, would make a great addition into your Toddler’s Easter Basket!

Little ones will love lifting the large, sturdy flaps in this sweet, irresistible board book to find Baby’s Easter eggs from Karen Katz.

Baby Touch and Feel: Bunny 

Touch and feel baby books are another great type of book to put in a baby’s Easter basket!  These books are a great way to teach your littles about texture!

Book Ideas for Preschoolers

Preschool age is such a great age for kids to develop their fondness of reading! They are starting to learn letters and words, they start to develop favorite authors, and their imaginations are getting quite good when it comes to retelling the stories they have read!

That’s why books would be a fabulous gift suggest for your preschooler’s Easter basket!

Eggs Are Everywhere

Interactive books are great for any age! For a preschooler, books they can turn the wheel on as well as lift the flap, are wonderful ways to encourage fine motor skills, which is always a win-win when it comes to a gift. 

Eggs Are Everywhere is a fun book that will grow with your kids. After you are done reading to them, they can lift the flaps themselves as well as retell the story!
