Easter is right around the corner – and in my opinion, there is nothing better than an Easter basket full of BOOKS! (A good book beats a sugary marshmallow chicken any day of the week!)

If you’ve read the blog before, you know how much I love book lists. (Check out my most popular book list here!)  I love book lists because I am passionate about getting books into the hands of kids. I long to live in a world where all kids are eager readers.

One easy way to get kids excited about reading is to get them reading about upcoming events – like holidays. Even a reluctant reader might get a kick out of reading about shiny eggs, the Easter bunny, and baskets full of goodies! I rounded up a list of fantastic books that will appeal to children. I sorted the list out so you can find exactly the book you’re looking for.

I have Easter board books for babies and toddlers, Easter chapter books, Easter books that deal with Jesus and the resurrection, books about eggs and the Easter bunny, and every child’s favorite – Easter books featuring their favorite characters! SOO much Easter fun! My hope is that you will browse the list and find a book or two to grab for your child’s Easter basket! Jellybeans will be gone in minutes, but books are an investment that will last!

Happy reading and happy Easter!!
