The Best Childrens Easter Books to Fill the Easter Bunny Basket For Kids

Updated on July 21, 2011

The Easter Bunny That Overslept

Personally, I love this book. The Easter Bunny finds himself in a bit of trouble as he overslept Easter and woke on Mothers Day! He tries as he will to deliver Easter eggs, but no one wants them. He continues to try different ploys to get his eggs delivered. Such as painting them red, white and blue for the 4th of July, but still no one wants them! Finally, he is blown to the North Pole where Santa gives him the ultimate gift- A golden alarm clock, ensuring he will never sleep late again. Vibrant colors and great detail, this book is great for the over-sleeper or hard to get-going child.


Lift the Flaps

Children love the surprise of Lift the Flap books. And Where's Nicky's Easter Egg by Harriet Ziefert is no disappointment. Nicky is an adorable kitty who wonders,"Where is my Easter Egg?" This small-size board book with large flaps is a fun and cute way to find the answer.

Peter Rabbit

Every year I give my girls a hollow chocolate bunny in their basket. It is either, Flopsy, Mopsy or Cottontail. When my oldest was able to read, she asked who they were? I went out and bought Tales of Peter Rabbit and all the books of this series has become a favorite in my home.

The book is about four little rabbits that all wanted to go down the lane or into the fields. The only place that they were not allowed to go was Mr. McGregor's garden. Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail were good little bunnies and went down the lane to the field. But Peter was very mischievous. He went to Mr. McGregor's garden!! When he got into the garden he saw the best sight of his life. There was food galore! Did he get caught? Did he get out without punishment? You will be surprised by the ending....

Guess How Much I Love You

I will admit, this book holds a spot in my heart. I read this book to my now 13 year old daughter from the time she was two. She and I have it memorized and to this day when we say goodnight to each other, we quote the words from this book.

It is a beautifully illustrated book with a sweet story of love between parent and child.

The Giving Tree

"Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk ... and the tree was happy."

This is a tender story, touched with sadness, and an subtle explanation of unconditional love. Shel Silverstein has created a moving,heart wrenching story of a boy and a tree. Honestly, this is a book for all ages as it sends a powerful message and will be cherished for a lifetime.

Explaining Easter

Explaining Easters meaning to a child can be difficult to say the least. But there are books that can help make it easier.

My Day with Jesus is about a donkey with a special assignment. The donkey is so proud to be chosen to carry Jesus into Jerusalem. This board book tells the story of Palm Sunday from the donkey’s point of view.

What Is Easter? does a great job explaining the true meaning of Easter. The book goes from place to place asking "Is this what Easter means?" By the end of the story, even the youngest child will understand that the Easter Bunny is for fun and Easter is about Gods son.

On Easter Sunday follow three young children and their dog as they prepare for Easter. Explanations of church, worship and why this day is celebrated is illustrated and told wonderfully for young ones.

Velveteen Rabbit

What is the goal of every toy? To be made "real" through the love of a human of course. Velveteen Rabbit is a classic that must be shared with every child, young or old.

 "'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

This classic is perfect for any child who's ever thought that maybe, just maybe, their toys have feelings. Perfect for Easter or anytime!
