Today we are sharing five Easter books that are great for babies aged 0-2. These books are filled with simple rhymes, fun songs, bright colors, and easy engagement– perfect for story time with your littlest reader!
Easter is often filled with candy and treats, but we think books are the perfect simple gift to give to babies (and kids too!) for this holiday. We have always included an Easter book in our kids’ baskets and they are always excited to have a new book, and we know if will get lots of use and enjoyment. Win-win in my books! 😉 And for kids a little bit older, be sure to check out our preschool Easter book list.
Happy reading and Happy Easter! xo
Five Bouncing Bunnies Lily Karr
A short rhyming book that counts down from five to one! Warning: you’ll be singing this song until summer.
That’s Not My Duck Fiona Watt
Both of my kids loved the “That’s Not My…” touch and feel book series. The repetitive text paired with tactile pages is great for young kids. We couldn’t help but include the duck version in our Easter list!
The Itsy Bitsy Bunny Jeffrey Burton

The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Easter Colors Eric Carle
The beautiful well-known illustration’s from Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar are paired with familiar Easter images in this short and sweet book. This has been a great book for helping our youngest with color recognition!

This lift-the-flap book series is perfect for younger babies as the flaps are large and sturdy (no tearing!) Babies and young toddlers will have fun finding lots of Easter surprises while looking for baby’s sparkly Easter eggs!
