It is hard sometimes to find books for children that teach them the true meaning of Easter that they can really understand. The following books teach children about Easter in terms that they understand and also keeping them interested in the story the entire time. That is why we consider them the Best Easter Books for Children.
Esther the Easter Donkey is a new book that tells the Easter story from the perspective of the donkey Jesus rode on Palm Sunday. In addition to teach about the Easter story, this book also teaches acceptance.
God Gave Use Easter is about a bear cub who celebrates Easter with her Mama, Papa, sister and brother. She has many questions about Easter. Papa shares with her and her siblings what Easter really is in very clear terms that children can understand.
The Easter Story is a great book for toddlers and preschoolers as it tells the entire Easter story using very simple terminology that small children can understand. The colorful illustrations are eye-catching and each page has only a few sentences, which is nice if you have an active child that likes to turn the pages quickly.
Easter in the Garden follows a little boy named Micah and tells about the first Easter through the eyes of a child. The personal touch of this story and beautiful illustrations helps capture the attention of children of all ages. You will want to shout “Jesus is alive!” along with Micah at the end of the book.
