Picture book suggestions for Easter

It's the holidays now. Only the childcare program children are present. While we enjoy plenty of creative and expressive art activities normally, the holiday period is when there are even more of such learning experiences.

This holiday, we talk about Easter. The display boards outside, both at the Taska and Tadika, now have Easter bunnies, Easter eggs and such. They have been singing songs and watching videos relating to Easter. Also, the teachers have been sharing stories with rabbits in them. Here is a brief list of picture books that may be used. Of course, there are plenty of other books to choose from in the market, so maybe you could suggest some, too?

  • The Magic Rabbit by Richard Jesse Watson

  • Grumpy Bunnies by Willy Welch, illustrated by Tammie Lyon

  • Playful Bunny by Kimberly Zarins, illustrated by Bernadette Pons

  • Clean Up, Grumpy Bunny! & Let's Share, Grumpy Bunny! by Justine Korman Fontes, illustrated by Lucinda McQueen
