All through the Easter period we’ve had a pile of Easter books on the side for anyone to pick up and read. Here are a few of our favourites
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is an Easter must here – 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.
Linked clearly to the Easter story Teddy Horsley’s Sunny Day reflects his experience of Easter.
Where is Jesus? 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.
The 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.
And finally one in the brilliant Usbourne That’s Not My… series – That’s Not my Donkey is a great read for Palm Sunday.
This has been a lovely way to let the children explore the story at their own pace.
