2017 Easter Books
Egg by Kevin Henkes
Lovely, sweet, beautiful, and heart-warming. Did I mention lovely? Henkes uses soft pastel colors, repetitive illustrations, and repetition of just a few words to tell the story of an unexpected egg that hatches late, doesn’t fit in, and then, . . . does! Egg’s compellingly beautiful message is a must-read.
We’re Going on an Egg Hunt by Laura Hughes
In the same style as the we’re going on a bear hunt story, follow four rabbits as they hunt for Easter eggs. Open flaps to find tiny animals and eggs. Visually appealing, kids will practice counting as they read this familiar structured, interactive tale.
Ready, Set Find EASTER
Learn the basic Biblical Easter story then find the hidden items on each page. For example when Jesus has supper with his friends, you’ll look for a sack, candle, bread, grapes, cat, cate, head covering, and a pitcher and cup. Large, sturdy tabs help little fingers turn each page. Vibrant art plus a well-summarized story.
Otter Loves Easter! by Sam Garton
Otter doesn’t want to share the candy from his Easter basket because it’s yummy and it’s his. Until he realizes his friends didn’t get a fun Easter. Easter Otter to the rescue! (It’s going to be the best Easter ever.) Great lesson about sharing.
