For a bookish family such as ours, celebrating a holiday means reading about a holiday. Christmas has many literary traditions attached to it: think A Christmas Carol, the Christmas scene in Little Women, The Night Before Christmas.
Easter, not so much.
However, I’ve discovered some wonderful faith-based picture books that share the story of Jesus, his crucifixion and resurrection, with young children. Some are retellings from Scripture, others are legends, fiction, or explain the history of the Easter symbols. The following is a list of books that I either own or I check out from our local library every year to help us celebrate the Easter holiday.
