Books are such a good Easter basket stuffer. They’ll last much longer than the chocolate bunnies will. For great ideas of ones to add to your kids’ Easter baskets, this list of Cute Easter Books For Kids will help.

For more ways to make this the best holiday, check out all of our Easter posts.

Four books in an Easter basket with the words "10+

So much of the fun of Easter, for kids, is going through Easter baskets to see all the marshmallow eggs and chocolate bunnies and other goodies the Easter Bunny left.

When I’m putting together an Easter gift for the little kids who visit us for Easter, of course I give them candy. But I also make sure to fill the Easter basket with non-candy items, like books. They’re a great way to take up a lot of space in the Easter basket (making it a little less expensive for you to fill them), plus they’re something tangible that they can keep long after the plastic Easter eggs filled with jelly beans are empty.

If you want to give books too, but you need a little help figuring out which to buy (because there are a lot out there), we put together this great list of the best Easter books for kids.

There are options for babies and young readers who can read on their own. And, if you keep scrolling, there’s a section with religious books and the traditional Easter story and links that bring you directly to those books at online stores. So, if you’d prefer to gift those, you can easily find those.

Books are such a great inedible item to stick in Easter baskets for young children so you’re not giving them a huge basket of sugar.

Hippity, Hoppity, Little Bunny Finger Puppet Book

Hippity, Hoppity, Little Bunny Finger Puppet Book

I absolutely love this Hippity, Hoppity, Little Bunny Finger Puppet Book. We put it in an Easter basket last year and it was a big hit.

Young kids can stick their fingers in the back of the board book and then “hop” the bunny’s head around as you read the story. It’s so much fun.

The book is really well made, as is the rabbit, so you don’t have to worry about it falling apart or wearing out. The book is small too, which is perfect for small hands.

Peekaboo Chick book.

Peekaboo Chick by Camilla Reid

The Peekaboo You series is so popular amongst young kids, and Peekaboo Chick is the series’ springtime book.

Each page has easy to pull tabs that young kids can push, pull, and turn to reveal different images on the page. The picture book is really fun and really interactive, so it’s the perfect gift for your youngest kids (it’s best for babies to 2 year olds).

Happy Easter, Mouse book.

Happy Easter, Mouse by Laura Numeroff 

If You Give A Mouse A Cookie is a classic tale. But, did you know there’s a full series around Mouse?

Happy Easter, Mouse follows Mouse from the series on an Easter egg hunt. What’s great is that there are a different number of colorful eggs on each page, so your young reader can point out the colors and numbers. So it’s educational while also being a really cute book.

Mickey & Friends Easter Egg Hunt book.

Mickey & Friends Easter Egg Hunt

Activity books are such a great addition to Easter baskets because it gives kids something to play with that has nothing to do with screens. So definitely add this Mickey & Friends Easter Egg Hunt book to your kids’ basket.

The Easter activities book comes with four crayons and over 50 stickers, plus a ton of pages with activities, like mazes, connect the dots, coloring pages, and more. Each page features classic Disney characters (Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, etc.), which is nice.

Bluey Hooray, It's Easter book.

Bluey Hooray, It’s Easter

Bluey is so popular right now, so this Bluey Hooray, It’s Easter lift-the-flap book will be so popular with your kids.

It’s a board book, which means it’s really sturdy for little kids. And it needs to be. Because, as the story goes, Bluey and Bingo are on an Easter egg hunt, looking for eggs. And where are they? Under those flaps that your kids will lift a bunch of times. The book is constructed really well, so it should hold up all Easter season long.

Pete the Cat and the Easter Basket Bandit book.

Pete the Cat and the Easter Basket Bandit by James and Kimberly Dean

Pete the Cat gets into the most adorable capers. And in Pete the Cat and the Easter Basket Bandit, it’s no different. Someone stole Pete the Cat’s Easter basket and he has to find out who did it.

There is a lesson in the book (of course) about sharing. Which is one your kids might need to remember before their Easter egg hunt.

You're My Little Honey Bunny book.

You’re My Little Honey Bunny by Natalie Marshall

You’re My Little Honey Bunny is the Easter offering from the You’re My Little series. It’s a chunky board board that’s perfect for little hands. It has a cutout on each page, which has beautiful illustrations. The cover is a little bunny, but inside there’s flowers, a chicken, and more.

Every two pages rhyme, which is a really nice rhythm for little kids. You see just the “baby” first, then flip the page to reveal a full scene that shows the “parent.”  Cach page talks about how much the parents loves the baby without just saying “love,” which is actually really sweet.

Peter's First Easter book.

Peter’s First Easter

Beatrix Potter’s The Tale Of Peter Rabbit is classic. So you probably know about it. But do you know about Peter’s First Easter?

It’s a super cute book that follows Mopsy on her way to Peter Rabbit’s Easter picnic. Along the way, she’s passing a bunch of things — which your young reader can count. So it’s more than just a storybook, it’s educational too.

Hoppy Easter, Honey Bunny book.

Hoppy Easter, Honey Bunny by Sandra Magsamen 

Yes, that big fluffy bunny tile is attached to this little book. How fun is that?

Hoppy Easter, Honey Bunny. It is a touch-and-feel book, which is so fun for your little one. The book is filled with rhymes and bright colors to really keep your kid’s attention if the fuzzy tail isn’t enough to do that).

Colortivity Hello Cutie book.

Hello, Cutie Colortivity

I’m a big fan of gifting activity books for holidays, so this Hello, Cutie Colortivity book gets a big yes from me.

It comes with four twistable crayons, which are perfect for the sweet coloring pages inside the book. There are mazes and connect the dots games too, all with cute bunnies, bears, and just adorable animals on the pages. The back cover of the book has three bookmarks to cut out (with an adult’s help, of course) so that’s a nice keepsake when the rest of the book is done.

Peppa Pig Happy Easter book.

Peppa Pig Happy Easter by Reika Chan 

If your kid loves Peppa Pig, this Peppa Pig Happy Easter book is perfect. It’s the shiniest book on the list, thanks to its foil cover, and the only one shaped like an Easter egg (which feels like a missed opportunity for other Easter books, honestly).

This is actually just one of the Peppa Pig-themed Easter books. There are a ton more, even a Peppa and George Love Easter Little Golden Book.
