Children’s Books for Your Easter Baskets

I’m blogging just once a month in 2018, on the first Wednesday of each month.

Easter comes early this year, on April 1. To help you plan how you’ll fill a basket for your child or grandchild, here are three books that have caught my eye.

I haven’t seen them in person yet, so take that into account. But these are three I’ll be looking to check out soon!

That Grand Easter Day, by Jill Roman Lord (Worthy Kids/Ideals)

This is a cumulative picture book—that means it builds throughout the text to a grand finale with the kind of repetition children love (and learn from). It opens at Jesus’ tomb, with the stone rolled in front, and ends with His glorious resurrection. I think this one would be great fun to read through with a little one! Here’s how it begins:

This is the place where Jesus first lay
before he arose on that grand Easter day!

Ready, Set, Find Easter (Zonderkidz)

Part of a series from Zonderkidz, this board book about the Easter story features 48 different labeled objects for kids to find in the illustrations.

365 Trivia Twist Devotions (B&H Kids)

George Washington’s birthday? National Waffle Day? Ingenious inventions? Yes, and every daily devotion in 365 Trivia Twist Devotions based on the historical and the wacky will keep kids interested and reveal truths from God’s Word in a fun new way.

Will you add a book to an Easter basket this year? What will it be? One of these or another favorite of your own?
