If you’re looking for an Easter gift for a young child that won’t be full of sugar, why not choose a book instead? Here are some of our picks:
If an egg hunt is tradition in your house, you’ll enjoy the lift the flaps fun of We’re Going on an Egg Hunt! With its traditional rhyming structure and interactive pages, this one is great to read aloud.
A lovely present at any time is Sam McBratney’s classic Guess How Much I Love You, and the featured bunnies make it extra relevant at this time of year.
If you’re after a classic character to help introduce your child to Easter, there are lots of options. We chose Grug and His First Easter, but there are also stories featuring Spot, Peppa Pig, Maisy, and many more.
We have all heard of the Easter Bunny, but how about the Easter Cat? Basket in hand, this cat wants Easter all to himself in Here Comes the Easter Cat.
For a religious perspective, try Easter is Special by Anita Genari. It covers all the different rituals and stories around Easter across the globe. There are plenty of options out there for a classic retelling, but we liked The Story of Easter for its colourful illustrations.
Okay, we know there will still be chocolate involved, but learn a valuable lesson from Grendel‘s cautionary tale – there can be too much of a good thing!
And finally, check out Easter Cooking for recipes and activities to make and do with your kids over the Easter holiday – when you’re not reading, of course.
