Jesus’ Focused Easter Books for Christian Families
The Easter Cave – This one is great for younger kids because it’s told in the same style as This is the House that Jack Built (another favorite fun read!), but my older kids enjoy it, too. And because of the rhyming and repetition, we all find ourselves reciting portions of the story throughout the day!
The Tale of Three Trees – This book tells the Easter story in a new and unique way. You can read this any time of year, but we pull it out at Easter. I also love the reminder that God cares about our dreams, even if they come to life in very unexpected ways.
The Legend of the Easter Egg – We discovered this one at the library years ago, but it quickly became a favorite for the care, the hope, and the good news it shares. Within the story, many references are made to the events around the time of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
On That Easter Morning – You can grab this one for a dollar or two on Amazon. Based on different Scripture passages, this book retells the key events of Holy Week through Resurrection Sunday. This would pair great while going through the Clean on the Inside Easter Family Devotional. The ending is such a wonderful reminder. It reads, “Jesus was alive again; not a king in this world, but the king of heaven. The dark power of death was defeated. God’s own love lit the world on that Easter morning.” (And I must add :: Hallelujah!!)
The Easter Story – My artistic son loves the rich illustrations in this retelling of the Easter story. It is one he looks through over and over again.
Grandfather’s Story – This is an old book (published in 1978), but I love how this story links the baby born in the manger (a story almost all kids know) with the One who died on the cross and rose from the grave! So many re-tellings of the Easter story are heavy on the death and skimp over the resurrection. This does both so well, and you can feel the emotion as you read it together.
