Easter Books For Babies & Tots

Five sweet seasonal stories that are perfect to share with your family

Easter is just around the corner and the prospect of egg hunts brings almost as much glee as that first look under the Christmas tree! The spring holidays (and sugar) are sure to bring lots of fun and excitement -- why not steal a quiet moment before and snuggle up to read some Easter books with your little ones? Here are four modern Easter stories, with a classic thrown in for good measure.

Owen’s Marshmallow Chick by Kevin Henkes

Owen the mouse, one of author-illustrator Kevin Henke’s most beloved characters, and his fuzzy yellow blanket make a return in this short and sweet board book. Owen loves the treats in his Easter basket and eats most of them up in short order. But the yellow marshmallow chick reminds him of a certain special blankie—too precious to eat!

Max’s Chocolate Chicken by Rosemary Wells

Ok – you might be very tired of the cartoon versions of Max and Ruby, but the books that inspired the TV show hold up as simple and charming stories that kids love. Nothing like an Easter egg hunt to stoke sibling rivalry, and Ruby is in fine form as she instructs Max on the rules of the game. But as usual, Max finds a way to work around them. 

Ollie’s Easter Eggs by Olivier Dunrea

If Gossie the gosling and her gang are favourites at your house, you’ll love this story about Ollie, who wants to keep all of his friends’ multicoloured Easter eggs to himself.  Simple enough to read to babies, and repetitive enough to keep toddlers engaged, this board book combines a cute story with colours and counting.  (Bonus: the hardcover version comes with a sheet of stickers.)

Here Comes the Easter Cat by Deborah Underwood, illustrations by Claudia Rueda

It’s not often that you find a book that is as funny for adults as for kids, but this is one of them. A feisty cat with a penchant for sparkly vests and motorbikes lobbies for a new job as the Easter Bunny’s replacement…if only he can keep himself from napping all day long! Perfect to share with older preschoolers.

A Tale for Easter by Tasha Tudor

Written in 1941 and still in print 70 years later, this sweet picture book beautifully captures the anticipation of Easter and the new life of spring. A little girl endures her fancy dress fitting, helps makes hot cross buns, and then falls into a magical dream before awakening to discover what special things await her on Easter morning.
