Stuff those Easter baskets with books this year! These are my top choices for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers from Usborne Books and More!
Books for Babies & Toddlers
From babies to preschool, children will love trying to “spot” the bunny through a hole on each page. Except…when they turn the page, it isn’t the bunny at all! Cutouts, finger trails, and beautiful illustrations make this a perfect addition to any Easter basket.
Our top-selling series is full of textures, simple phrases (to lead to early reading), and bright pictures. These books are a hit with babies and toddlers every time!
This cute cloth book features a variety of touch-and-feel fabrics with a short sweet story about a baby bunny. Perfect for the car or diaper bag, this was our top choice for our baby!
Little children will enjoy matching the baby animals to their mothers and fathers in this sweet lift-the-flap book. This one is cute, affordable, and sturdy!
Books for Preschoolers
This Young Beginners nonfiction book is an exciting way to learn about some of the season’s baby animals. The simple text is broken up between lots of pictures to make the book approachable and fun for a wide range of ages.
The First Questions & Answers series is the perfect way to help young children learn about the world around them. The lift-the-flap format makes it fun too! We’re especially eyeing this one in our family because we’re starting a garden this year!
The dramatic events of the Easter story sensitively retold for young children. When Jesus rides into Jerusalem he is welcomed by cheering crowds. But soon the temple priests are plotting against him… A book to read together or for new readers to enjoy alone.
Activity Books for Toddlers & Preschoolers
Give the gift of fun in the form of activity books this Easter! Sticker books, busy books, and fingerprint books are great for a young child to enjoy for an extended time AND to help build their fine motor skills.
Celebrate springtime with little lambs, bouncing bunnies, fluffy chicks and an Easter egg hunt. There are over 250 stickers to add to the delightful scenes.
Join the busy bunnies in this book as they get ready for Easter. Whether it’s baking tasty treats for a picnic, planting colorful spring flowers, or making Easter bonnets, there are lots of exciting stickers to add to every scene.
Watch as the toy bug whizzes around the tracks in this delightful interactive book. Wind up the bug by pulling it backward, place it on the tracks and watch it wiggle around the garden. Our Busy Books are sure to bring a smile to any child’s face!
Bursting with fun fingerprinting ideas, this colorful activity book comes with its own inkpad of seven bright colors. Decorate the scenes with ants, ladybugs, bees, spiders, and more. There are simple instructions showing how to fingerprint each creature and the book has a spiral binding so that it lies flat.
I’d love to hear which of these books you add to your little one’s Easter basket this year! I hope they bring many smiles and happy memories to your holiday and beyond.
