This week I'm going to share a few of the books we have been reading for Easter.
I love reading holiday books! I picked out a few Easter books this year but we got a few other books that are spring or bunny-related to read this weekend. The two Easter books I got are Llama Llama Easter Egg by Anna Dewdney and Duck and Goose: Here Comes the Easter Bunny! by Tad Hills. I chose these because I like our other Llama and Duck and Goose books and they have characters that are familiar. We already had the Runaway Bunny, and the Easter Bunny at Nana and Pa's house gave the babies I am a Bunny by Ole Risom and Flip, Flap Fly! by Phyllis Root.
Llama Llama Easter Egg is simple and short and shows Llama celebrating Easter with all of the classic Easter treats like jelly beans and brightly colored eggs. In Duck and Goose: Here Comes the Easter Bunny!, Duck and Goose try to find a hiding spot to stay overnight while waiting for the Easter Bunny to come. I won't tell you whether they succeed!
The Runaway Bunny is a sweet classic about a mama bunny who will always be there for her baby bunny. I Am a Bunny is a Little Golden Book and has a retro vibe since it was originally published in 1963. It's about a little bunny named Nicholas who takes you through all of the seasons. I enjoyed it but the pictures didn't really grab the babies' attention as much as newer, vibrant books like Duck and Goose or Llama Llama.
The last book, Flip, Flap, Fly!, is about all kinds of animal babies. It has sweet illustrations, rhyming text, and a lot of movement words. I think it will be especially fun to read as the babies are getting older and can guess which animals we will see next or act of some of the movements of the animals.
What is your favorite Easter or springtime book?
