Easter books for all ages {Easter}

The tulips are bursting, the eggs are on sale, time to break out the Easter books, moms!  Here are a few of my favorite picks this year, perfect to buy now and read for bedtime or put in the Easter basket:

Ollie’s Easter Eggs by Oliver Dunrea

Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie are all dyeing Easter eggs. Ollie wants Easter eggs too and he has a plan on how he’ll get them!  A simple Easter board book, perfect for any baby’s basket this year is Ollie’s Easter Eggs .  This brightly colored book is funny and captivating for small audiences (preschool).

The Egg Tree by Katherine Milhous

This Caldecott Medal winner will surely have your kids excited about painting Easter eggs this season!  The Egg Tree is based on the Pennsylvania Dutch Easter and a tradition of painting eggs to hang on a tree.  It is a very old story, I believe first published in 1950, that has such charm in both writing style, content and illustrations.  Great for grades 1-4.

One Easter morning, Katy and Carl went on an egg hunt through Grandmom’s house. Katy couldn’t find anything until she went up to the attic. And there she discovered a very special set of eggs…
Grandmom had painted them when she was a little girl. And now, she hung them from the branches of a tiny tree — an Egg Tree! So began a very special Easter tradition.

The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by DuBose Heyward

Another classic reborn, The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes has been released in a beautiful new 75th Anniversary Edition with free audiobook. This book is way before its time.  Written in 1937, Cottontail is told she cannot be the Easter bunny because she is brown, she is country, she is not only a female, but a busy mother of 21.  When a new Easter Bunny is to be chosen, clearly Grandfather will choose a prestigious white bunny or a swift jackrabbit — or will he?  I love this tale of an ambitious mother who accomplishes her long-time dream of being an Easter Bunny. The undertones of racism, sexism and class are subtle but there… reads different as an adult!  Great for grades K-3.

    First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!
