Almost Spring! 5 New Kids’ Books for Learning About Easter

EasterCollageOn my annual search for age-appropriate Easter books for young children, I found these five new and new-to-me books that I can highly recommend.

Which ones will you add to your home library?

My First Easter, from Worthy Kids/Ideals. Signs of spring for the littlest ones in clear, simple photos include colorful eggs, flowers, and baby animals plus church, prayer, palm branch, Bible, sunrise, and cross. A hardcover book with board pages and rounded corners.

One Spring Lamb, written and illustrated by Anne Vittur Kennedy. Count the gifts of spring from 1 to 10 in this rhyming board book that concludes “On Easter it’s a joy to know that Jesus lives and loves me so.”

My Easter Basket and the True Story of Easter, by Mary Manz Simon, illustrated by Angelika Scudamore. The colors in a child’s Easter basket remind us of the true story of Jesus’ death and resurrection, very simply told. Board pages and glitter!

The Story of Easter Activity Book, from Worthy Kids/Ideals. With stickers, mazes, dot-to-dot, coloring and more, this bright activity book introduces ages 3 to 6 to the biblical story of Easter.

The Legend of the Easter Robin, by Dandi Daley Mackall, with new illustrations by Richard Cowdrey. This picture book offers an Easter legend, some serious but not graphic images of the crucifixion, a grandmother with calm confidence in the Creator, and a little girl discovering faith and trust.
