The Golden Egg
My childhood copy of The Golden Egg Book. I won’t say how old it is, but the book was made the same year I was born.  As you can tell, it was one of my Easter favorites.

 

Easter is around the corner.  We can start thinking about Cadbury eggs, Peeps, biting off the ear of a milk chocolate bunny, and trying not to eat another Whoppers Robin Egg!  We can also pull the Easter books out of our library and start getting the kids excited and informed. If you don’t have these 8 books in the Easter section of your library, I’d like to recommend you consider adding some. The books I chose to share with you are timeless.  I plan to read them to my grandchildren someday.

 

 

The Story of Easter  by Patricia A. Pingry

I like this book because it is told in simple enough form for a preschooler and toddler to understand.  After 2 or 3 reads, kids will be able to tell the story themselves. The book includes Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem through the crucifixion and the resurrection.  The traditional form of the story is presented. Ages 2-5.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter

This famous tale gives the adventures of Peter Rabbit in Mr. McGregor’s garden.  Not only is this a story that holds children’s attention, but there are plenty of lessons to discuss during and after reading the book.  The board book is best for toddlers and the storybook is best for preschool and up. I just bought the newest book on the bottom because of all the rave about the movie.  I give the illustrations 4.5 stars. 5 THINGS I LEARNED FROM READING THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT

Here Comes Peter Cottontail   by Steve Nelson 

I choose to share this book with my kids because we sing the Here Comes Peter Cottontail song by Gene Autry. Learn song here.  The book is very simple, and the illustrations go well with the words.  The kids will know the words to the song by the time Easter arrives.  I would recommend this book for ages 1-5.

The Berenstain Bears and the Real Easter Egg and The Berenstain Bears Easter Sunday by Stan Berenstain

If your children like the Berenstain Bears both of these books are great to own!  The Real Easter Eggs (non-religious) story is centered around the egg hunting of Easter, guilt-free, it’s ok to include hunting eggs at Easter. Easter Sunday (Christian) gives a good description of the Christian reason we celebrate Easter.  It does a very good job of giving a kid-friendly version of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins.

Last but not least…

 

The Golden Egg Book by Margaret Wise Brown

I didn’t even realize the cover of the book had changed until I went to do this blog.  I also found that the pictures were changed some too. This book really holds the kids’ attention every time. This much-loved book is about a lonely rabbit who is super curious about what is inside of an egg.  The book takes you on his impatient wait to find out what is inside.  Turns out, it’s a duck! Happily ever after ending. It’s not an Easter book.  It’s a book that includes a rabbit that is great to introduce at Easter.  Then you can leave it out all year.
