1. Pete the Cat Big Easter Adventure
Our favorite feline is at it again with his big Easter Adventure. Will Pete be able to help the Easter Bunny deliver all the eggs? Goodness yes! And your littles will love every minute of it.
2. Little Blue Truck's Springtime
This little celebration of spring is just right for pre-k and kindergarten students, and first graders will love reading it themselves. If you have any truck fans in your class, this book is an excellent addition to your collection.
3. There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick
Have I mentioned how much we love the Old Lady books? We have at least one copy of every one of these books and the Easter version is no different. If you're working on sequencing or rhyming, this book has you covered.
4. The Easter Egg
The classic Jan Brett book is beautifully illustrated and a great book to add to your classroom collection. Hoppi tries so hard to help Easter Rabbit but is easily discouraged. Will he get to help make the deliveries Easter morning? Read and find out.
5. Duck and Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny
Join Duck and Goose as they find the perfect hiding spot to find the Easter Bunny. This endearing book will have your students falling in love with Duck and Goose all over again.
6. Here Comes the Easter Cat
Cat is upset because the bunny is getting all the attention. If your students love the Elephant and Piggie books, they'll love reading this one, too.
7. The Story of the Easter Bunny
Are your students asking about where the Easter Bunny came from? Or "Is he real?!" I just love the "is it real?" questions! Well this little story tells how the legend of the Easter Bunny came to be.
8. The Biggest Easter Basket Ever
Clayton and Desmond want to win the town's Easter contest and find the biggest Easter basket ever. If you've read The Biggest Pumpkin Surprise Ever, The Biggest Snowman Ever, or The Biggest Valentine Ever, this is the sequel. I substitute the characters' names for my students names and call it "the magic book." They beg me to read it all season. :)
9. Here Come T.Rex Cottontail
Any dinosaur lovers in the house? This silly twist to the typical Easter book will have your little rolling with laughter. T.Rex tries to save Easter when the bunny gets sick. But things aren't as easy has they seem.
Junie's first grade class is having an Easter celebration at Lucille's house and Junie B. gets to wear the bunny suit. Unfortunately, this party doesn't exactly go the way she planned.
