Best Easter Books to Share as a Family
What Is Easter? from JellyTelly (and Veggie Tales) creator Phil Vischer is a delightful book that explains the meaning behind many symbols of the season. What do eggs and bunnies have to do with Jesus? Buck Denver and Friends ask some big questions and learn how we can all celebrate the new life that Jesus brings at Easter.
One Spring Lamb lets little readers count along with sweet rhyming text to celebrate all the fun things that come with Easter. This fun counting book ends with the most important part of the Easter season: the reminder that Jesus lives and loves us so.
Winter’s nap is over, and new life is all around! Flowers are blooming. Birds are chirping. And the Really Woolly characters are discovering God’s goodness all around them. Curl up with your little one, and join the fun while learning about the hope of Easter and springtime in Really Woolly Easter Blessings.
A Sweet Passover is an adorable children’s book about a little girl named Miriam and her family’s Passover traditions. Besides sharing a cute story, the author inserts great information about Passover and its meaning as well as including a full explanation at the end in words a child can understand. Use this Easter book for ideas to plan a family Passover meal.
The Story of Easter is a wonderful way to introduce young hearts to the miraculous story of the holiday. Sweet text and adorable illustrations will engage kids as they read along with parents and grandparents. This small book is perfect to place in a child’s Easter basket!
The International Children’s Bible version is my absolute FAVORITE for kids so I couldn’t be more excited about this new Bible. It makes the perfect Easter, Baptism or Salvation gift for children. The ICB Jesus Calling Bible for Children will help kids dive into God’s Word as they enjoy a heartfelt devotional time. This is the first full-text ICB Bible for children with 160 full-page devotions from the Jesus Calling children’s devotional. The two-color Bible text and devotional content are complemented by an additional 96 vibrantly colored Bible story inserts that tell key stories from the Bible, along with a takeaway application. Also included are 365 highlighted key memory verses for young readers, prayers, and kid-friendly applications. The ICB Jesus Calling Bible for Children will help your children grow in knowledge and in relationship with the Lord.
