Easter is just around the corner! We look forward to Easter and also the newness of spring! One of our favorite ways to celebrate Easter is by reading Easter picture books. We usually read a couple of books each night leading up to Easter Day.
30+ Easter Picture Books
The list of 30+ Easter Picture Books are perfect for read-alouds. They are also great for budding readers who are just beginning to practice reading on their own or with someone. The books are about Easter themes. Also some of the books have the added bonus of including counting and colors.
The list is divided onto sections based on the books reading level. The baby and toddler books are usually board books and are great for reading together. While the preschool and kindergarten Easter picture books section is great for beginning readers to read with you.
