10 Lovely Children’s Easter Books

When we were children, the Easter Bunny always used to leave at least one children’s Easter book each for me and my sister, as well as chocolate eggs.  So while other children had let’s say five chocolate eggs, we had four chocolate eggs and a book or two.  I don’t recall ever feeling hard done by.  Though I also don’t recall ever comparing with other children how many eggs we got.

My mother instilled a love of books and reading in me, any way that she could, and for that I am eternally grateful.  It’s a love I encourage my own children to have, any way that I can too, and now me and Dave also like to replace one of each of our own children’s chocolate eggs, with books.  Check out these lovely children’s Easter books, if you’re looking to do the same.

Ditch a chocolate egg for one of these children’s Easter books instead

Surprisingly, there’s not a huge amount of children’s Easter books available, which aren’t religious, but I found a few.  All of these children’s Easter books are available from Amazon, and linked below the pictures.

1. We’re going on an egg hunt

Join the Easter Bunnies as they set off on an exciting lift-the-flap Easter egg hunt.  With ten eggs to find and count, it’s great fun.  But watch out for the obstacles along the way – lambs, chicks, bees and ducks – and there’s even a wolfish surprise, so do take care.

Based on the traditional ‘We’re Going on a Lion Hunt’ rhyme, this will be a huge hit with all fans of the classic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

Now Bunny has had enough – he hatches a genius, chocolately plan with uneggspected results…
