What are your family Easter traditions? One of mine is reading kid literature about Easter with my kids & giving each of them a new book. (Pictured above are the books each kid will get this year!) We also love to do an Easter egg hunt (probably a modified, social distancing one this year) & an Easter egg advent (opening an egg & looking at a symbol from Christ's life & reading the accompanying scriptures in the week before Easter.)
This post will include both a picture book list for children (16 favorites) & a list of baby board books (6 favorites.) I hope your Easter can be a restful & healing time for you & your family this year. I always love traditions surrounding Easter, but especially when they're centered on Christ & new life. Many of these books will be fun ones for kids, but I will also share a few of my favorite Christ-centered Easter books too.
And I should go ahead & mention that I will have a spring book list coming out (separately) in a couple of weeks. Hoppy reading everybody!
