EASTER PICTURE BOOKS
These picture book recommendations come from our 8-day Easter guide, but are also delightful additions to your library on their own!
Humphrey's First Palm Sunday
If you've read (and loved) Humphrey's First Christmas, you'll fall in love with this one, too. Humphrey the camel was present at Jesus' birth, and now 33 years later, he sees Jesus entering Jerusalem. This book is a delight - funny, yet reverent, and such an insightful perspective on Palm Sunday.
This is a fresh perspective on Psalm 23. The author has simply used the words of the Psalms and added gorgeously illustrated scenes from an inner city community of Black children as they move through their day. A powerful rendering of a familiar Psalm, reinforcing the truth that the Lord is our Shepherd.
the friend who forgives
This book creatively chronicles the relationship between Jesus and Peter. Peter denies Jesus three times (as Jesus predicted he would), and yet Jesus forgives him fully.
the garden the curtain and the cross
A theologically sound, relatable account of the entire gospel story. I especially love the emphasis of the temple curtain tearing in two and what that means for us as believers.
the one o'clock miracle
This is part of a series called "Tales that Tell the Truth" and all of the books in the series are worth owning, in my opinion. This tells the story of Jesus healing a little boy, and you'll find yourself right beside the boy's father, praising Jesus that His promises are true!
the story of easter
A straightforward Easter account that also explains Easter celebrations and traditions around the world. This book helped our family understand the origins of Easter eggs.
the story of easter
A simple Easter picture book that tells the story of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. A perfect introduction to Easter for little ones.
the tale of three trees: a traditional folktale
The story of three trees who have big dreams and then are suddenly cut down, only to find that their purposes are much bigger than they would've imagined.
