Easter traditions may have to change a little bit this April while people are social distancing, but one tradition that can stay the same is reading together! We keep our holiday books in a box to take out around holiday time, so they seem extra special, but I really love finding books that fit the holiday theme but stay relevant all year long. For Easter, I especially love books about bunnies, ducks, chicks, and eggs. Check out our list below of Easter-ish Children's Books to read with your little one this Easter. They also make great additions to an Easter Basket!

4. FOLLOW ME, FLO! by Jarvis
From the illustrator that brought us Pick a Pine and Pick a Pumpkin, Follow Me, Flo! is a story about a Daddy Duck's instructions for his little duck, Flo, to follow him or else get lost. Daddy Duck makes up a song with all the directions for the journey, but Flo starts to make up the words, and ends up wandering off. A fox starts to follow Flo while she tries to remember Daddy Duck's directions and find her way back again. Jarvis's cheerful ducky illustrations and story are the perfect addition to your preschooler's Easter basket!
