Ditch The Eggs! Have An Easter Book Hunt

In our house we have always been huge fans of Easter and (dare we say it?) it may even be our favourite holiday. Every year our family takes part in a huge Easter Egg hunt, but we tend to stray away from the classic formula. Instead of our hunt participants getting so many eggs that they could easily melt them down and create a life size chocolate replica of themselves - we supplement eggs with other small gifts. One of our favourites being books! 

Here are three great suggestions:

1. Fancy Nancy's Elegant Easter by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser

Book Blurb: Nancy prepares an elegant Easter affair in this fancy new lift-the-flap book! Throwing a fabulous and fancy Easter party is a very big job—and Nancy and Bree are in charge of decorating! This book includes thirteen flaps that open to reveal hidden surprises that will delight all festive Fancy Nancy fans!

2. Here Comes The Easter Cat! by Deborah Underwood
Book Blurb: A cat with flair to spare, an Easter Bunny with a job to do, and a hilarious break from sticky-sweet Easter fare for fans of Patrick McDonnell and the Pigeon books by Mo Willems.

Why should the Easter Bunny get all the love? That's what Cat would like to know. So he decides to take over: He dons his sparkly suit, jumps on his Harley, and roars off into the night. But it turns out delivering Easter eggs is hard work. And it doesn't leave much time for naps (of which Cat has taken five--no, seven). So when a pooped-out Easter Bunny shows up, and with a treat for Cat, what will Cat do? His surprise solution will be stylish, smart, and even--yes--kind.

3. So Many Bunnies by Rick Walton and Paige Miglin
Book Blurb: Old Mother Rabbit lived in a shoe. She had twenty-six children and knew what to do. From Abel, who sleeps on a table, to Zed who sleeps on the shed, help Mother Rabbit tuck a whole alphabet of adorable little bunnies in for the night.
