A couple weeks ago, I was in Barnes & Noble catching up on kids books. When I saw books telling the Easter story for kids … I decided to share some Easter books that you’re family will love & your kids will be able to read. If you want my list of books for older kids, you can read it here: Easter Story for Older Kids
They are easy-type readers.
The best book to tell the Easter story to kids is the Bible, of course. I think you should read the Bible to kids to all ages. But, young kids enjoy The Beginner’s Bible alot. We used this children’s Bible with our own kids. It tells the Bible stories and stays accurate. I recommend it to new readers & young kids.
3 Board Books that tell the Christian Easter Story
I love board books because they are durable & last a long time!
Not only are these wonderful books that tell the Easter story for kids , they are terrific evangelistic tools to share with other families. If you have non-Christian friends, give one of these books as an Easter gift.
The Easter Story
by Patricia A. Pingry
Gently reminds us that Easter is all about Christ’s death & resurrection. Brief synopsis of Jesus life & miracles performed. Each page is about one sentence in length, making it perfect for new readers & young listeners.
The Story of Easter
Patricia A. Pingry
The story of Easter for kids is presented in 200 words…wow! From Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem to his death & resurrection. Much is compacted into a small book. Great gift for families with young kids or young readers.
What Is Easter?
by Michelle Medlock Adams
Kids enjoy Easter eggs, but the conclusion of this book is Easter is all about God’s Son dying for everyone.
Finally, let’s end with an easy reader.
Jesus, God’s Only Son: Biblical Values
by Dennis Jones
If you have ever wondered how to share the gospel of Christ’s resurrection with your children this would be a great book to pick up. Since it is written in simple sentences your child can read it alone or with you.
While I was in Barnes & Noble, I discovered there are several Bible stories about Biblical characters in the easy readers sections. If you want other books for your child to practice reading, you’ll also find books about Adam & Eve, Noah, Moses, David, Jonah & Daniel, to name a few.
While my kids were growing up, we read specific Scripture during Passion Week. If you’d like our list of Easter Bible verses to read each day from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, just enter your email below. We’ll send it automatically to you.
