With a few of our favorites plus some new ones we’re excited to try, here are, in my humble opinion, the best Easter books for toddlers in 2024.

Highlights of the Best Easter Books for Toddlers

The big list of Easter books is below, but if you’re in a TLDR mood, here’s a quick list of the best Easter books for toddlers:

veggietales easter egg hunt
  • My kids’ favorite: Great Easter Egg Hunt (Veggietales) – they love the button on this book that sings ‘Christ the Lord Is Risen Today’ to the point where they get this book out all year long.
Indestructibles: Happy Easter
  • My favorite for babies: Indestructibles – Happy Easter! – it’s chew and rip-proof, so your baby can try to eat it or tear it up, and it won’t give in. You can even toss it in the washing machine.
Little Blue Truck's Springtime: An Easter And Springtime Book
  • Another toddler favorite: Little Blue Truck’s Springtime – my kids reach for this one constantly, and it’s also the #1 most-sold Easter book for kids on Amazon.

1. Peter Rabbit Tonie

My kids are obsessed with their Tonieboxes (ages 4 and 5), and this Peter Rabbit tonie is perfect for Easter. It’s small, so it fits in the Easter basket, but it has over an hour of stories, including:

  1. The Tale of Peter Rabbit™
  2. The Tale of Benjamin Bunny™
  3. The Tale of Mr. Tod™
  4. The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies™

2. Beatrix Potter: The Complete Tales

We also really love our Yoto player, so I had to give a shoutout to their version, Beatrix Potter: The Complete Tales.

Theirs has a runtime of over 5 hours and includes:

  1. The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Other Stories
  2. The Tale of Pig Robinson and Other Stories
  3. The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin and Other Stories
  4. The Tale of Benjamin Bunny and Other Stories
  5. The Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck and Other Stories

3. Don’t Push the Button – An Easter Surprise by Bill Cotter

Don't Push the Button! An Easter Surprise

If your kids loved Larry the monster from Don’t Push the Button, they’ll love his reappearance in this Easter edition. Kids excel at doing what they’ve been told not to do, so I can see why this book appeals to them. It’s fun and interactive—two great ingredients for baby and toddler books.

4. Llama Llama Easter Egg by Anna Dewdney

llama llama easter egg

The bestselling Llama, Llama series spans a range of ages, but this fun Easter version is a great way to introduce Llama Llama to little ones. Follow along as the Easter Bunny brings special Easter treats for Llama Llama, plus a surprise at the end! It’s simple to read, and its rhyming text helps make it memorable for toddlers.

5. Spot’s Easter Surprise by Eric Hill

spots easter surprise

We can’t have a list of toddler books without Spot, right? In this one, Spot is at his grandparents’ house, hunting for Easter eggs with his friends. They find all the eggs, but there’s one more surprise. Grandparents in particular might choose this for a grandchild’s Easter basket. 

6. Easter Egg is Missing! by Clarion Books, Illustrated by Kathryn Selbert

easter egg is missing

Toddler books that ask a question are genius because kids are full of questions. (Do they come with an off button?) This book unfolds the mystery of a missing golden egg. Because it keeps toddlers guessing, it keeps them engaged – a definite must for the Easter basket. 

7. Good News! It’s Easter! by Glenys Nellist

good news its easter

If you’re looking for a book about the true meaning of Easter, this one’s a good choice. It introduces Christ’s resurrection by showing how springtime brings new life, and it’s a board book, which means it’s sturdy. I also like its rhyming text and cute illustrations.

8. Little Blue Truck’s Springtime by Alice Schertle

Little Blue Truck's Springtime: An Easter And Springtime Book

Little Blue Truck is back! This one is a big favorite in our house. It could even be deemed as the best Easter book for toddlers as it’s the #1 sold Easter book for kids. It checks all the boxes for a great toddler Easter book: a loveable character, cute baby animals, rhyming words, and lift-the-flaps.

9. Indestructibles: Happy Easter! by Amy Pixton

Indestructibles: Happy Easter

These Indestructibles books great for babies and young toddlers whose curiosity results in, well, total destruction of books. Here’s a rip-proof, waterproof, and super-light-weight book all about the Easter bunny and his delicious treats. If your baby tries to eat them off the page, no worries.

I love that these books are totally baby-proof. You can even toss them in the wash!

10. Duck and Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny! by Tad Hills

Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny

This is a great Easter basket addition for Duck and Goose fans. The feathery duo want to catch a glimpse of the Easter Bunny, so they’re searching for the perfect hiding spot. Will they get to see him? It’s colorful and sturdy, and like many other successful kids’ books, it has a question at its heart.

11. Happy Easter, Little Pookie by Sandra Boynton

Happy Easter, Little Pookie

I’ve always thought Sandra Boynton books appeal to adults as much as to kids. Maybe it’s the illustrations–they’re just funny. In this cute Easter book, Pookie the cow hops around with a friend, decorates eggs, and dreams of Easter treats to come. Sandra Boynton strikes gold again.

12. Never Touch a Grumpy Bunny! by Rosie Greening

Never Touch a Grumpy Bunny

Just like the Don’t Push the Button series, the Never Touch A ___ series taps into a child’s delight at being jokingly told not to do something and then getting to do it anyway. With silicone textures for curious hands, funny rhymes, and colorful illustrations, I’d say this one is an Easter win.

13. Construction Site: Spring Delight (An Easter Lift-the-Flap Book) by Sherri Duskey Rinker

Construction Site- Spring Delight

Little truck lovers, rejoice: the Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site series has an Easter edition! This fun, rhyming book is a lift-the-flap celebration of spring, with the construction crew marveling at the new life all around them. Look out for the Easter egg hunt surprise at the end.

14. The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Easter Egg Hunt (from the world of Eric Carle)

The Very Hungry Caterpillar's Easter Egg Hunt

Many of us parents grew up reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so I love that our kids can discover Eric Carle, too. In this lift-the-flap book, the Very Hungry Caterpillar is on the hunt for Easter eggs. If your toddlers are like mine, they’ll love meeting the farmyard animals and searching for each egg.

15. Happy Easter, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff

Happy Easter, Mouse

Can you believe If You Give a Mouse a Cookie has been around since 1997? Decades later, Mouse is still a firm favorite with toddlers. In this Easter board book, Mouse hunts for different-colored Easter eggs around his house. Kids can help Mouse find the eggs while learning colors and counting. Engaging and educational—a win-win.

16. Crack-Crack! Who is That? by Tristan Mory

Crack-Crack! Who Is That

What’s better than a book with a handle to pull? A book with a handle to pull that also makes noise! (Well, better from the kids’ point of view. Maybe not for the parents.) Babies and toddlers can pull the handle to find out which baby animal is hatching from each egg and listen for the crack-crack sound.

17. The Itsy Bitsy Bunny by Jeffrey Burton

The Itsy Bitsy Bunny

 “The Itsy Bitsy Spider,” gets an Easter remix! You and your kids can sing together about the Itsy Bitsy Bunny to the tune of this well-known nursery rhyme. Follow along as the Itsy Bitsy Bunny races to hide all his eggs before Easter comes. 

18. Little Bible Playbook: The Story of Easter by Katya Longhi

Little Bible Playbook- The Story of Easter

This colorful book with die-cut pages shares Jesus’s experience from Palm Sunday to Easter morning. Whether or not you adhere to the Christian faith, your preschoolers can learn about the Easter story in an engaging way.

19. A Colorful Easter (Peter Cottontail)

This coloring book is under $4 and comes with paint – it’s the perfect addition to your Easter basket for toddlers.

20. The Story of Easter by Patricia A.  Pingry

The Story of Easter

Add this one to your biblical Easter story collection. It introduces Jesus and what the biblical Easter story is all about while using simple language and beautiful illustrations to keep toddlers engaged. I also like how it connects the original Easter story with today’s holiday festivities.

21. Thomas and the Easter Eggs (A Thomas and Friends Little Golden Book)

Thomas and the Easter Eggs

Ok, so I was a little worried this one might feel dated, but then I thought no, Thomas the Tank Engine is a classic! Countless Thomas fans will be happy I’ve included this one. Read along as Thomas tries to save Sodor’s annual Easter egg hunt from total disaster.

22. A Little Book About Spring by Leo Lionni

A Little Book About Spring

Children’s book author and illustrator Leo Lionni became a household name a few generations ago, so I’m thrilled that new readers are discovering his work. This little celebration of spring is a perfect Easter basket addition, with nature-infused, collage-style artwork and simple text, ideal for ages 0 to 5.

23. It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny by Marilyn Sadler

It's Not Easy Being a Bunny

It’s never too early to teach kids big life lessons, and this board book for toddlers tackles a big one: it’s best to just be yourself. The story follows P.J. Funnybunny, who’s tired of the bunny life. Where else might he belong? Toddlers will laugh at P.J. Funnybunny’s unsuccessful attempts to live as other animals do.

24. One Little Bunny: A Counting Playbook by Seb Braun

One LIttle Bunny- A Counting Playbook

I really like books with cut-outs that babies and toddlers can poke their fingers through. For them, it’s just as interesting a lift-the-flap book, except they can’t rip the flaps off. This cute, springtime book includes these cut-outs for tactile fun, plus it teaches counting skills. Not to mention baby animal bliss!

25. Happy Easter, Bunny! by Pippa Mellon

Happy Easter, Bunny

I’m not sure many parents are fans of noisy toys, but for me, books are different. This sweet story about a little bunny delivering Easter gifts to friends has three sound buttons with a new version of the song, “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, along with a chick’s chirp and a bunny’s hop. Hey, if sounds keep kids endlessly entertained, then books like this are totally worth it.

26. The Great Easter Race! (Sesame Street), by Craig Manning

The Great Easter Race

I couldn’t leave Sesame Street off the list! A few of Sesame Street’s most beloved characters meet up on Easter morning for the Great Easter Race. There’s a turtle and a bunny (sound familiar?), along with surprises around each bend. Who’s going to win? This one’s great for kids aged 3–6.

27. I Spy Little Bunnies by Jean Marzollo

I Spy Little Bunnies

The classic I Spy series is such a firm favorite for all ages. This one uses the same kind of I Spy riddles in the search for little bunnies. Ask your toddler to find other objects, too. It’s a great way to teach them new words!

28. Great Easter Egg Hunt (Veggietales)

veggietales easter egg hunt

This VeggieTales book is my kid’s favorite Easter book, so I could not leave it off this list of best Easter books for toddlers! They press that button and flip through the pages all year long.

29. How to Catch the Easter Bunny

It’s a The New York Times and USA Today Bestseller for a reason! It’s a cute book that’s really engaging for toddlers.

30. Why Easter?: Jesus Died for Us So We Can Live Forever

If you want a book that teaches your kids the real meaning behind Easter, this is a fantastic book to put in their Easter basket. It’s brand new, with a release date of March 5, 2024.

31. Hippity, Hoppity, Little Bunny – Finger Puppet Board Book

My one-year-old is a sucker for these finger puppet books. You can’t go wrong with it!

32. Easter Hidden Pictures Puzzles to Highlight

Last but not least is this fun highlight book. Kids can use the included yellow highlighter to create fluorescent scenes and find hundreds of hidden objects.

Honorable Mention: HelloBible

I also wanted to briefly mention HelloBible, a Christian subscription box for toddlers. These kits come with themed activities and typically a book, too.

This is the book included in last year’s HelloBible Easter box! We have gotten these for a long time and absolutely love them.

If you want some Easter-themed activities to do with your little ones, I highly recommend this box. As far as I know, it’s the only Christian subscription box with crafts for toddlers.

They have a great Easter box this year, too!
