To say that I’m a book addict would be underestimating my love for books. I have shelves full of them, and that means that my kiddo does, too. But reading stories to him has been a tremendous aid in helping him understand what the holidays are all about. Here are 10 Easter books for preschoolers that you need to check out, including some of our favorites!
I try to find appropriate books for every holiday, but Easter is a special one for us. We love the fun and excitement that talking about Easter eggs and the Easter bunny brings. But Easter is about more than that. We want him to know about Jesus and his sacrifice in a way that he can understand at 3 years old.
This list offers a mix of both. Some books below have a religious theme while others are just fun stories or good lessons. I think you’ll find something for everyone here.
1. God Gave Us Easter – A book featuring polar bears that explains to children how God loved us so much that he wanted a way for us to be with always.
