Between Easter quickly approaching and the extra time at home with our kids, I wanted to compile a fun list of books that could either be a last minute edition to an Easter basket or just something new to read at bed time. These are some family favorites in our household and may even be books you’re unfamiliar with, which I think it’s always fun to discover new ones! We hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do!
This one has been a favorite since Laney was a baby. The rhyming makes for a fun flow and has great touch and feel pages.
If you have a little one who loves dinosaurs, this book is a must! Great interactive pages and teaches opposites. We added this one to our collection after visiting a dinosaur exhibit at our local zoo this past winter. We have been enjoying it ever since!
Also by the same author as the two books above, this is another fun book about weather. This author has a bunch of other great books too including Birds, Solar System, Arctic Animals, Construction Site and more!
This was a random find at the library several months ago, so I grabbed because of Laney’s love for donuts. We read it every night for weeks so we bought it for Laney for her 3rd birthday. We still read it all of the time!
Biblical + Devotionals
My Mother-in-Law has a knack for finding some great books for the girls. As a retired educator, reading is made a priority and this was another fun find that teaches the alphabet as well as bible verses.
This was a gift given to me at my baby shower for Laney. I’ve kept it put away in her closet to wait until she was old enough for it. I rediscovered it recently while cycling through some of our books and we have been reading one lesson each day and they have been so great! Perfect for her age! (Laney turned 3 in January) It has really cute illustrations and sweet little prayers she can repeat after me. I plan to start giving this book as part of baby gifts, it’s that good.
This is another devotional recommended to us a by a friend. I recently got it in the mail and it has slightly longer longer lessons than the one mentioned above as well as less pictures so I will give it a go after we finish I Want to be Just Like Jesus and determine if we should save it or can continue.
I hope these help fill time you don’t necessarily want to be filling with screen time. Which of these books do you want to add to your family’s home library?
