Easter Books for Children: Toddlers and Preschoolers
If your toddler loves lift-the-flap books, We’re Going on An Egg Hunt is a winner. Follow the bunnies on their egg hunt while practicing basic counting skills.
I’m a big fan of Teagan White’s whimsical illustrations. With its timeless message about a mother’s love for her child, his bunny-themed board book will stay in your book rotation long after spring passes. This book makes my list of best children’s Easter books as well as my list of favorite bedtime books for babies.
If your child has a special lovey or stuffed animal, this is a perfect option for their Easter basket! Dear Bunny is written as a letter from a girl to her special Bunny, chronicling all the sweet things they do together every day.
Read along as ten eggs hatch right before Flora’s eyes! Another book in Molly Idle’s Caldecott-winning series that will be different each time you read it. This is easily one of my favorite counting books and I gave this Easter picture book to my daughter for her very first Easter.
A classic Easter book for a reason. If you don’t already have this in your collection, add it now. My daughter particularly loves finding the bunny when he becomes a crocus in a hidden garden. As a bonus, you can keep it out for Mother’s Day too.

The Bunnies Are Not In Their Beds
A super fun read aloud bunny book that will be the perfect bedtime book in the days and weeks leading up to Easter.
I like the Llama Llama holiday books because they explain a new holiday or season in very few words with simple illustrations. They’ve become a fixture in our home for this reason. I display a Llama Llama book on our shelves almost monthly.
Another fun Easter book for toddlers that can be read well past Easter, because it’s not about Easter per se, but is about an egg hunt.
There’s something hilarious and adorable about this Easter picture book about a bunny who loves yoga. If you feel inclined, this book includes some simple yoga poses you and your child can try together to get some wiggles out.

With rhyming text and cute pictures, Peek-A-Boo bunny will delight little ones who are starting to get in to simple search-and-find books.
If you haven’t yet discovered the author Emma Dodd, you are in for a treat! This bunny one may make you tear up as you read it to your toddler for the first time. Definitely a favorite!
An intricate book with poetic text, kids and adults alike will be mesmerized by Greig’s attention to detail. And I’m not going to lie– this book makes a beautiful addition to any #shelfie.
Packed with silliness from beginning to end, this book (and the skunk therein) is sure to become a favorite children’s Easter book.
Another well-established classic Easter book, The Country Bunny is a nostalgic choice.
Any list of the best children’s Easter books would be complete without mentioning Beatrix Potter. The holy grail of every Easter book collection, the entire Beatrix Potter box set is a gift I dream about giving my daughters. I remember being drawn to these slim volumes in a special case at my own grandmother’s house. If you’re ready to splurge, splurge here!
The Best Children’s Easter Books for Babies
While many of the books I’ve recommended above can certainly be read aloud to your baby, there are lots of fun Easter books for babies that are really interactive. I’ve found several great lift-the-flap or touch-and-feel options with simple text and bright illustrations. Any of these choices would make a great addition to your baby’s first Easter basket.
