The Easter Egg by Jan Brett

Jan Brett’s lovable bunny hero, Hoppi, and the surprising outcome of his quest to impress the Easter Rabbit with the best Easter egg of all will enchant readers.  

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 for a walk in the woods and sees a blue robin egg tumble out of its nest. 

Hoppi keeps it safe and warm until the baby bird hatches. And when the Easter Rabbit arrives, he has a very special way to reward Hoppi for his kindness.

Spring is everywhere in gorgeous illustrations framed with pussy willows, flowering vines and flowers. Side borders feature busy rabbits making their unusual eggs and, in a border above, the robin’s family drama unfolds.

+ The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale by Angela Elwell Hunt

Featuring the wonderful illustrations of Tim Jonke, this best-selling children’s book tells the Easter story from a new and unusual point of view. Three trees on a mountain dream of what they wanted to become when they grew up. One wants to be a treasure chest, another an ocean-going boat, and the third a signpost to God. Their wishes come true in a way they never expected. Children will be deeply touched as they understand, perhaps for the first time, the significance of Christ’s life and his atoning sacrifice on the cross. Recommended for ages 4 and up.

A Tale for Easter by Tasha Tudor

You can never tell what might happen on Easter… You might find colored eggs waiting in your shoes, or a basket of ducklings at your kitchen table, or a sweet bunny in Grandma’s rocking chair.

+ The Easter Story by Patricia A. Pingry

Expertly crafted for the attention span of wiggly toddlers, this simple book tells the biblical story of Easter — from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem all the way to his triumphant Resurrection. Text continues past the Bible story to help little listeners understand the connection between the original Easter and today’s Easter celebrations. With appealing illustrations and a toddler-friendly text of just 200 words, this book will make a great addition to any Easter basket.(Amazon’s description)

The Egg Tree by Katherine Milhous

One Easter morning, Katy and Carl went on an egg hunt through Grandmom’s house. Katy couldn’t find anything until she went up to the attic. And there she discovered a very special set of eggs…

Grandmom had painted them when she was a little girl. And now, she hung them from the branches of a tiny tree—an Egg Tree! So began a very special Easter tradition.

This Caldecott Medal-winning story of a Pennsylvania Dutch Easter will surely inspire children to make Egg Trees of their very own.(Amazon’s description)

+ Simon and the Easter Miracle by Mary Joslin

Both thought-provoking and engaging, this is the story of Simon of Cyrene —”a man coming in from the country,” as the Gospels refer to him—who was ordered to carry Jesus’ cross. Over the centuries, his story has been woven into Polish folklore; when Simon the farmer brings his wares to market, little does he expect how he will be involved in the events of that very special day, nor how his produce—of bread, eggs, and wine—will become important symbols of Jesus’ passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages.(Amazon’s description)

+ The Legend of the Easter Robin: An Easter Story of Compassion and Faith

This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Robin renews the wonder and charm of the original and timeless tale written by Dandi Daley Mackall. With new vibrant artwork from New York Times bestselling illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, this holiday classic is brought to life for a new generation. The Legend of the Easter Robin tells the story of Tressa, whose grandmother reveals to her the story of a small robin who saw Jesus struggling and soared to help him. This Easter tale reminds Christians everywhere how much Jesus sacrificed for us and how much he loves us.
