20 Delightful Easter Picture Books to Read Aloud
As I began to write An Expectant Easter, I knew that one of the very first things I needed to do was gather the best of the best Easter picture books. I scoured blogs, asked my friends in my Instagram stories, and searched online. Easter books by the dozens came into my home and I read each and every one. This list is a compilation of my favorite 20! Some are Christ-centered, some are full of bunnies and eggs, and some celebrate various cultures and Easter traditions. All of them are filled with lovely words and illustrations.
