Looking for the best Easter books for your 2 or 3 year old toddler? Look no further as I’ve compiled a list of the 10 best books about Easter for toddlers.
Although all these books are related to Easter you will find that they range in topics from the Easter bunny and egg hunts to a more serious tone of the Christian Easter story.
You are sure to find at least one book on this list that you will love reading to your toddler this holiday and include one of these books into a Easter basket to put a smile on your little one’s face.
The Top 10 Best Easter Books For Toddlers Ages 2-3 Years Old
Make sure you scroll all the way down as these books may be the top books, but they are listed in no particular order below.
This Easter board is perfect for holding your toddler’s attention through the whole thing. There are 6 fun flaps that can be lifted to discover different springtime objects such as baby chicks
The book follows the basic “Where Are..” books for little kids as you must discover other items under the flaps before the grand finale of all the eggs in a fold-out special on the last page.
Lift-the-flap books are great for toddlers as a way to interact with the story. I know that I would find my toddler “reading” the story and playing with the flaps by herself and it would keep her entertained for some time. You and your child won’t be disappointed with this Easter book.
2. Ollie’s Easter Eggs
If you haven’t read a Gossie and Friends book to your toddler then you are missing out. This book follows Ollie as he sees his friends Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie all dyeing Easter eggs and it gives him the idea on how he can get some eggs as well.
There is humor and fun in the story and the book is filled with beautiful, vibrant pictures to go along with the story. You’ll find other holiday books about Ollie and his friends, but this Easter one is a must-have for ages 2-5 years old.
Join Peppa Pig and her friends as they go on an Easter egg hunt that Grandpa Pig sets up for all of them. Along their egg hunt they will discover all kinds of interesting springtime things as they hunt down all the chocolate eggs.
If your toddler is a fan of Peppa Pig, this is such a great book to include in their library. It would great for an Easter basket gift or just a little surprise before the holiday.
I know that my youngest daughter still enjoys Peppa and her friends and this definitely was a huge hit for Easter last year.
Join the whole Veggie Tale gang as they go on the great Easter egg hunt to discover what is in their eggs. All of the Veggies find their eggs but with one catch, Junior’s egg is empty.
Using the empty egg as a reference to the empty tomb of Jesus, this book introduces the story of Jesus and the Christian meaning of Easter. The book is done in a way that makes it enjoyable as well as understandable for toddlers ages 2 and up.
And there is even a fun button that they can press to hear the Veggie Tale gang sing the song “Christ The Lord Is Risen Today.” If you are a Christian and looking for a really good age appropriate book explaining about Easter, then this is perfect choice.
Little Cub is celebrating Easter with Mama, Papa, and her siblings and she begins to wonder what Easter really is. The story takes us with Little Cub and Papa as he shows Little Cub the beautiful arctic they live in as he explains how exactly Easter came about.
The story is very simple and easy to understand as it is appropriate for toddlers who are just being introduced to the subject. If you have read any of the other “God Gave Us..” books then you know how wonderful they are in explaining in simple terms what God’s plan is.
This would make a great addition to your toddler’s Easter basket to balance all the fun toys and candy and remember what the real reason behind Easter is.
This is just a sweet, short read that is great for a bedtime book for a 2 or 3 year old. It’s a board book so it’s not long and it will hold up to little hands playing with it. The illustrations are adorable as the little bunny tries to hide all his Easter eggs in time.
You may even find yourself singing the book along with your toddler.
This is another one of the best Easter books for kids that explains the Christian reason for the holiday. If you or your child is a fan of The Berenstain Bears, this is the best Easter themed book for this series.
In the beginning of the story Brother and Sister Bear can only think about Easter candy but as they start discussing their favorite candy in Sunday School at Church, their teacher Missus Ursula wants to show them that there is so much more to the holiday than just candy.
Along with Sister and Brother Bear, your child will learn the real Easter story while keeping it on the light side for younger kids. Although this book may be enjoyable for a 2 year old you may want to hold off and go with something like the Veggie Tales until they are at least 3 so they can understand it a bit better.
Duck and Goose are at it again in this Easter themed in which they where to hide to find the Easter bunny. Just like other Duck & Goose books it’s filled with colorful pictures and a fun story that little ones love to read over and over.
We have read so many Duck and Goose books in our house and my kids all enjoyed this Easter Bunny one. Just like most board books for toddlers the story is simple and understandable for 2-3 year olds but will still entertain and keep their attention.
This makes a great addition to your toddler’s library and is great for any tot who loves their Duck and Goose books.
This is a new Easter book for 2017 and is sure to become a huge hit with parents and kids. Your toddler will learn all about the colors of Easter with the fun illustrations from Eric Carle.
You’ll find the very hungry caterpillar and some friends as you discover new colors for springtime. This is a nice option for an educational book that can be read more than just at Easter time as well.
If you love Eric Carle then this new book is a must-have.
This is a Llama Llama board book which means it’s shorter in length and simpler to understand for younger toddlers. I know that we have read several Llama Llama books and they are always a cute read.
In this book, the Easter bunny has brought Llama Llama a bunch of great gifts from jelly beans to a fluffy little surprise for him.
If your little one is a fan of this series, this book may be the perfect finishing touch for his Easter basket. If your little one is a Llama Llama fan be sure to check out the Llama Llama character plush and book set for their basket as well.
Any of these toddler Easter books would be a great add in for an Easter basket as you can never have too many books.
