Board Books Introducing Easter Symbols

My First Easter  was written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola. This is a great first Easter book for very young children. The simple text introduces kids to some of the traditions and symbols of the Easter holiday. From coloring eggs to dressing in Easter bonnets, this book is also full of warm and inviting illustrations in the classic dePaola style.


Where are Baby’s Easter Eggs? was written and illustrated by Karen Katz.  Her lift the flap books are always a hit with parents and kids, since they introduce young readers to symbols of a wide variety of holidays and seasons in a fun and colorful way. This version follows the little baby as she hunts for her Easter eggs. The text also introduces kids to important concepts such as up, under and behind. Kids will love the sparkly illustrations, as well as finding all of the surprises behind the flaps.


Easter Bunny Board Books

Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny was written and illustrated by Tad Hills. This book follows the familiar characters of Duck and Goose as they try to find a hiding spot so they can see the Easter Bunny when he arrives. The simple text and bright and colorful illustrations will keep young readers entertained, while the ending is a very cute resolution.


The Bunny Hop (Sesame Street) was written by Sarah Albee and illustrated by Maggie Swanson. The lovable Elmo and his friends on Sesame Street find that bunnies have taken over the neighborhood! There are bunnies everywhere and no one knows where they are coming from. The cute illustrations and rhyming text show the characters taking part in a wide variety of familiar Spring and Easter activities as they try to find the answer. Kids will enjoy seeing their favorite Sesame Street characters, as well as finding out the happy ending to the story.


The Itsy Bitsy Bunny was written by Jeffrey Burton and illustrated by Sanja Rescek. This adorable take on the Itsy Bitsy Spider song follows a little bunny as he tries to get ready for Easter. The book introduces kids to some of the symbols of Easter through vibrantly colored illustrations and a fun rhyming scheme. This is part of a series of books putting a spin on the classic rhyme. I previously recommended two of them in my list of Christmas Board Books as well.


Easter Egg Board Books

Llama Llama Easter Egg was written and illustrated by Anna Dewdney. This is another cute board book in the Llama Llama collection. This is a great fit for younger readers, since there is less text on each page. The colorful illustrations complement the rhyming text which touches on some of the signs of Spring as well as some Easter traditions. Kids will love watching the familiar characters search for eggs and find a sweet surprise at the end!


Happy Easter, Mouse! was written by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond. Fans of Numeroff’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, will recognize the adorable little Mouse as he searches around the house for colored eggs. This cute book offers kids the opportunity to review colors and counting while they try to find the eggs in the fun illustrations.


Religious Easter Board Books

God Bless Our Easter was written by Hannah C. Hall and illustrated by Steve Whitlow. The book focuses on the idea of new life at Spring and Easter while showing young readers all of the signs of Spring that we should be grateful for. From the animals to the sunshine, the author introduces kids to many of the signs of Spring and reminds them to thank God and be grateful for them. The bright and colorful illustrations will entertain young bookworms, while parents will appreciate the message behind the rhyming text.


The Story of Easter was written by Patricia A. Pingry and illustrated by Rebecca Thornburgh. The book tells the story of Easter in a simple way which toddlers and young bookworms can comprehend. From Palm Sunday through the Resurrection, the story touches on the important points without overwhelming young listeners. The text is also complemented by bright and colorful illustrations. This is a great introduction to the Easter story!


There are so many great board books available to introduce your youngest bookworms to the symbols and traditions of the Easter holiday. From serious to silly, there is a little something for everyone. Do you have any favorite Easter board books in your family?
