Easter Books for Children
I love finding a good book to share with my little ones. I especially love finding holiday and seasonal books to read to them.
Easter is the perfect time of year to read about bunnies, chicks, eggs, and jelly beans. You can use picture books to introduce your little one to Easter, Easter traditions, and the Easter Bunny!
The short text and bright illustrations are sure to engage your young listeners from cover to cover!

Read on to discover our favorite Easter books for children ages 3-5. You should be able to find these books at your local library or used bookstore.
If you can’t find the books locally, you can order them from Amazon to be delivered directly to your front door.
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick! – This time, the hungry old lady swallows a chick, some straw, an egg, some candy, a basket, and a bow! And just as she’s hopping and skipping along, who should she meet but the Easter Bunny! Watch what happens when she trips, with amazing results!
Turkey’s Eggcellent Easter – Easter is almost here—and Turkey knows just how to celebrate. He’s going to win the eggstra-special Easter egg hunt!
The only problem is that animals aren’t allowed to enter. So he and his barnyard friends come up with a top-secret plan.
With his trademark disguises and a whole lot of help, Turkey goes undercover. Will his basket of tricks help him win a prize?
The Easter Egg – If Hoppi can make the best Easter egg, he will get to help the Easter Rabbit with his deliveries on Easter morning. But it is not so easy. Discouraged, he goes into the woods to think when a blue robin’s egg tumbles out of its nest. Hoppi keeps it safe and warm until the baby bird hatches, and when the Easter Rabbit arrives, he declares the empty blue eggshell the very best one to reward Hoppi for his kindness.
Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure – When Pete wakes up Easter morning, ready to check out his basket of goodies, he discovers the Easter Bunny needs a little extra help.
Our favorite groovy blue cat puts on his bunny ears and finds a way to collect, paint, and hide the eggs all in time for Easter.
Here Comes the Easter Cat – Why should the Easter Bunny get all the love? That’s what Cat would like to know. So he decides to take over: He dons his sparkly suit, jumps on his Harley, and roars off into the night.
But it turns out delivering Easter eggs is hard work. And it doesn’t leave much time for naps (of which Cat has taken five–no, seven).
So when a pooped-out Easter Bunny shows up, and with a treat for Cat, what will Cat do? His surprise solution will be stylish, smart, and even—yes—kind.
Here Comes T. Rex Cottontail – Peter Cottontail is out sick, and there’s only one dinosaur who’s up to the task of delivering his eggs on Easter: T. Rex!
All T. Rex has to do is work on hopping—without the wiggle. He keeps breaking all the eggs!
Join T. Rex and his friends as the big goof saves the day in a very special way. Will practice make perfect?
Happy Easter, Biscuit!: A Lift-the-Flap Book – Biscuit’s first Easter egg hunt is going to be egg-stra special. Where are all the eggs hidden?
Your little pup will enjoy lifting the flaps to find the eggs! Happy Easter, Biscuit! is a fun Easter basket and springtime gift.
Fancy Nancy and the Missing Easter Bunny – Fancy Nancy can’t wait for Easter. And this year, JoJo’s class pet, Nibbles the bunny, is staying at the Clancys’ house for the weekend.
But when Bree and Freddy come over to begin an Easter egg hunt, Nibbles goes missing! It’s up to Nancy to find her before anyone notices she’s gone.
Happy Easter, Little Critter – Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter is celebrating Easter in this classic, funny, and heartwarming book.
Whether he’s dyeing eggs, searching for baskets, or snacking on sweets, both parents and children alike will relate to this beloved story. A perfect way to celebrate the Easter holiday!
Pinkalicious: Eggstraordinary Easter – When Pinkalicious wakes up on Easter morning, she finds a note from Edgar Easter Bunny that leads to a fun family day.
Our Easter Adventure – Have you ever wondered where the Easter Bunny lives, or how he makes all those colorful eggs?
Join a group of children as they follow a trail of eggs and discover his secret hideaway! The question is, what will they find there?
