5 reads for Easter


Over the past few years I have used The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle every Easter time. A tale of new life, life seeming to end, a new beginning and things looking different afterwards it is a brilliant reflection of the Easter Story. I don’t explain or make the link but use it as a way to start to make connections and sense for little ones. Occasionally I use the Resurrection Butterfly as a link.


We had a donkey at Toast! on Palm Sunday so this book made an appearance. One in the brilliant Usbourne That’s Not My… series.


Linked clearly to the Easter story Teddy Horsley’s sunny day reflects his experience of Easter.


This is my favourite Easter book for little ones – a must have. Each page has a ‘lift the flap’ to find Jesus from Palm Sunday through to Easter.


And finally Usbourne books Easter Story ‘sticks to the script’ with an easier version for early readers and a fuller text to read to them or for older readers.

Happy Easter!
