Egg-cellent Book Gifts for Your Little Bunny’s Easter Basket

by Dena McMurdie

With Easter quickly approaching, it’s a good idea to have some basket stuffers in mind, and nothing makes a better (or less sugary) gift than a book. Here are some of my favorite Easter books, any of which would make a great addition to your child’s Easter basket.

What else will you be adding to your little bunny’s Easter basket this year?

    I have Llama Llama Easter Egg all ready to go into our Easter basket this year. My DD loves LL and this one will be a nice new break from reading Llama Llama Christmastime every night. Two others we adore are: Tao Nyeu’s Bunny Days and Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. Super fun video here: (adorable derivative for you Bugs Bunny’s “Duck Season!” Rabbit Season!” fans)

    Thank you for adding God gave us Easter it’s such a beautiful book we love it and the true meaning for the holiday by Lisa Tawn Bergren

    I love Rachenka’a Eggs by Patricia Polacco. Use it in the spring with my students. There’s a lovely Reading Rainbow episode showing author/illustrator/artist and all around awesome lady, Patricia Polacco making pisanki eggs and talking about her grandparents from whom she learned how to make them. Additionally, she suffered from severe dyslexia all through school, and she openly shares her struggles so kids can see that it gets better. Awesome!!!

  • We’re doing a chick themed Easter basket, so my son will be getting a copy of the new book Millie’s Chickens by Brenda Williams, about a little girl who raises backyard chickens.
