I love putting books in my kids' Easter baskets. While we do love candy, putting a book or two in their Easter basket is a wonderful alternative. They last so much longer than candy and are so much better for them! There are so many wonderful choices that I want to share some of my favorite Easter books for kids - a few classics mixed with new picks as well.

Home for a Bunny. This is not just my favorite Easter book, this is my favorite book from childhood. Margaret Wise Brown's lovely story of a bunny looking for a home is the one my mother read to me and now I read to my children. I just love it.
Here Comes the Easter Cat has become one of our new favorites. We picked it up at the library last week and I have read it about 100 times already. It's a really fun story about a grumpy cat who is jealous of the Easter Bunny. You'll love it!
That's Not My Bunny. We love the "That's Not My..." series of books with wonderful textures for babies and toddlers to explore. This Bunny version is perfect for Easter baskets!
Guess How Much I Love You. This adorable story of Big Nutbrown Hare & Little Nutbrown Hare is perfect to tell the little ones in your life how much you love them.
Book of Bible Stories. Easter is more than bunnies and candy. This treasury of Bible stories with read-along CD is perfect for anyone looking for a more meaningful gift.

Baby's Very First Little Book of Little Bunnies is another perfect choice for baby's first Easter. It's filled with adorable photos of bunnies that babies and toddlers will love.
Baby's Very First Touchy-Feely Animals Book is another one that's perfect for a first Easter. Babies will love to touch and feel all the soft animal textures.

The Biggest Easter Basket Ever. Another one of our favorite series, see Clayton & Desmond's take on friendship and working together in this fun Easter adventure.
