I love a holiday that we can form traditions around. Most of my traditions go back to my childhood but I do love making new ones too. One tradition that I've started and do with every holiday is have a stack of holiday books that only comes out for each holiday. We put them away for the rest of the year and a few weeks before we take them out and add them to our book basket in the playroom. The kids and I both get excited to see some of the books that we haven't read in a whole year. These are our favorites:
Easter Bugs - a cute lift the flap book that toddlers love!
The Velveteen Rabbit - not an Easter book but I include bunny books with my Easter stack. I always loved this sweet, classic story.
Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny! - my kids love the Duck & Goose books and this short little one is great for Easter
Llama Llama Easter Egg - cute Easter book for little Llama Llama fans
Where Are Baby's Easter Eggs? - my kids have always been fan of Karen Katz lift-the-flap books. This cute Easter book is no exception
It's Not Easy Being a Bunny - another bunny book. This is a cute one about a bunny who wants to be any animal other than a bunny. My kids think it's pretty funny!
Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure - we're also big Pete the Cat fans in our house and we love this Easter edition
The Classic Tale of Peter Rabbit - another classic bunny book that's appropriate for kids who can sit for longer stories
The Easter Egg - this is probably my favorite of all the Easter books we have. I think Jan Brett can do no wrong and I absolutely love all her books. This is a great story with gorgeous illustrations.
Easter - a cute touch and feel Easter book for babies
Pat the Bunny - this classic touch and feel book is great to put in Easter baskets
