The best treat to give kids this Easter (that’s not chocolate)

books for easter
Easter is quickly approaching, an exciting holiday for kiddos and a relaxing long-weekend for parents.

At the end of all the festivities though, is the inevitable sugar crash that comes from a day of egg hunts and chocolate-eating. While we’re not saying you should cut sugar out of your Easter celebrations entirely – you do you – alternative Easter gifts are an easy way to take the focus off the candy and put it onto something more productive and all-around beneficial for your little ones.

Our favourite Easter treat? Books!

Not only are books sugar-free, but they’re also:

  • Great for developing young minds
  • Relatively affordable
  • The perfect form of entertainment now, and for hours on end
  • A chance to bond


Whether you reach for a new classic like Bluey: Easter or a tried-and-true favourite like The Tale of Peter Rabbit, we guarantee that your kids will love reading these Easter books. From sticker books to lift-the-flap, these books are equal parts adorable and entertaining.
