8 More Easter Picture Books

Saturday, March 31, 2018

Honestly I'm not sure how it is already Easter tomorrow. We had an impromptu egg hunt in our backyard yesterday and plan on dying eggs this afternoon. My littlest won't get a basket this year, but our preschooler is excited about finding one on Easter morning. We've started a new tradition this year with the Easter Story Egg and it's been a short (less than 5 minutes) meaningful way to celebrate Holy Week. If you're looking for some really last minute books these are some that we've enjoyed over the last couple of weeks, including both secular and religious.
Finding a picture book that conveys the Christian message of Easter is a little tough and while neither of these books (The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross and God Gave Us Easter) are perfect, they are a good starting place if you want to add the religious element of Easter into your seasonal celebration. We've supplemented with our own doctrinal and theological beliefs and I've changed some of the words when I read them aloud—a tactic I know has a limited shelf-life.
Easter Croc: Full of pop-up surprises! is a cute one for preschoolers. Croc is pretty grumpy from the get-go, so it's an easy way to talk to little ones about feelings and asking politely for what they want.
As mentioned before, the Easter Story Egg is a book that can be read all at once or each day from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Beautifully crafted nesting eggs pop apart to reveal matching art that corresponds with a daily rhyme and scripture.
