Easter is a great time of year. Not only do we get to learn about Jesus but Spring is usually approaching and the crisp feel in the air is slowly being filled with warmth and sunshine. I always like to share my favorite holiday themed books with all of you. I’ve compiled my big list of must read Easter books which include religious and non-religious.
I love reading Holiday themed books to my kids. My kids are getting old enough where they are participating in the reading and its so fun. It helps them learn in exciting a different ways. I also love when they see pictures and stories in color. Holiday themed books always make the stories fun and exciting and they’re usually told from different points of view in ways that are easy for kids to understand.
