One of my favourite things about our book shelves is the variety of seasonal books that they contain. Over the years we have added to our collection of children’s Easter books, often opting to give them as gifts instead of chocolate eggs. The Easter books I’ve chosen to share are perfect for reading together as a family. These colourful picture books tell fun stories about Easter and Springtime.
These 15 fantastic Easter books for kids also make great Easter basket gifts too.
