I read books to my daughter at least once a day, about a half hour before bedtime.
Although she has a fair amount of books for a 3-year-old, the library has become my best friend!

Honestly, I get burnt out reading the same book over and over again.
Library books add a little bit of variety to our evening reading session.
When we get books from the library, I try to make sure that at least half of them are related to what’s happening in our lives.
That means during the month leading up to Easter, most of the books we will be reading will be about said holiday.
Reading is a great way to teach your child a new topic and I enjoy a good holiday book, so it’s really a win-win.
I do purchase a book almost every holiday as well as the occasional book about seasons, the weather, plants, and animals. However, most of the books we read come from the library.
Sure, the place tends to be a hangout for local homeless people, but the books are free to rent! And I definitely have a hard time turning down free stuff.
Where and how you choose to get your Easter books is totally up to you, though. I simply hope this list helps you find the perfect book(s) for your little guy or gal.
