Egg-cellent Easter Books for Your Little Bunny’s Easter Basket February 28, 2018 – Posted in: Book News
With Easter fast approaching, it’s a good idea to have a few fun stories to hand, and nothing makes a better (or less sugary) gift on Easter Day than a book! Here are some of my favorite books for Easter.
Join the Easter bunnies as they set off on an exciting lift-the-flap Easter egg hunt. With ten eggs to find and count, this board book is great fun. But watch out for the obstacles along the way – lambs, chicks, bees and ducks – and there’s even a wolfish surprise, so do take care!
Based on the traditional ‘We’re Going on a Lion Hunt’ rhyme, the delightful illustrations and read-aloud story will make this board book a huge springtime hit with all fans of search-and-find and lift-the-flap books. Best for 1+
Help Floppit the big-footed bunny “catch that egg” in this fun farmyard egg chase! Floppit’s farmyard friends have had enough of his enormous bunny feet. “Stop it, Floppit!” they sigh, every time he comes bouncing by. Floppit just wants to play – but the problem is his enormous feet cause chaos wherever he goes! But then an egg falls from Chicken’s nest and rolls away down the hill… will anyone be quick enough to catch it?
A fast and fun farmyard egg chase and perfect rhyming treat for Easter. Best for 2+
Mr Hare has a secret: there are big, juicy cherries at the top of the tree, but he needs his friends’ help to get them down.
One by one, he tricks each friend into dancing with him under the tree, until all the cherries fall to the ground and the forest friends have a great feast. Accumulation, sound words, repetition, and pure entertainment make this the perfect read-aloud book for adults and children to share. Best for 2+

Daisy is SO excited! She’s been picked to look after the class hamsters, Pickle and Pops, over the Easter holidays – AND her mum’s taking her to Chocolate Land!!! Trouble is, the two things probably shouldn’t mix…

Children will recognise Daisy’s world and understand completely the temptations she succumbs to, even if they’d never dare do the things she does. Terrific storytelling for newly independent readers.
