6 Books for Filling Easter Baskets #Giveaway

Easter is in just a few days and that means the Easter Bunny will be hopping through our homes hiding treats and filling Easter baskets with goodies for all the little boys and girls.

Who says those goodies have to be sugary sweets?! In our house E.B usually fills the baskets with only their favourite treats; sour cream & onion chips, Kinder Eggs, fruit rollups…but mostly some small toys and books.

Raincoast Books has some great titles to celebrate with before Easter and titles perfect for filling Easter baskets with – they’re fun to read and the kids will be thrilled to find them in their baskets.

Flora and the Chicks by Molly Idle

This new series of board books is perfect for the very youngest Flora fans. When a nest of eggs begins to hatch, how will Flora ever keep up with so many chicks? Featuring fold-out pages and Molly Idle’s graceful artwork, this adorable counting book will delight young children as they master new words and concepts.

This book is perfect for those little ones just learning to count!

Color Blocked by Ashley Sorenson & Illustrated by David W Miles

The color is blocked! Readers must rub, turn, and tap the pages to straighten out pipes, unplug corks, and keep the color flowing. But watch out – the color might run faster than you can keep up! Along the way, readers will learn primary colors, how mixing colors can make secondary colors, and why you should never, ever, put too much trust in a narrator…

We had SO much fun with this book and Colton learned how to make is favourite colour GREEN the next time he runs out!

Bloom by Deborah Diesen & Illustrated by Mary Lundquist

In this lushly illustrated story from Deborah Diesen that celebrates life and growing up, a mother and daughter plant a garden to see how something small blooms into something as beautiful and strong as their love.

I love how this book shows us how strong and special the bond between a mother and a child really is and now I can’t wait to start a garden with my boys.

Shiny Shapes: Easter Surprise by Roger Priddy

Join the Easter Bunny on a magical journey as he delivers Easter eggs to the baby animals – from the lambs in the meadow to the baby birds in the nest.  There are egg-shaped holes on every page, edged with shimmery, shiny colored foil, leading to the end of the story – and a very special surprise for Bunny himself!

In this book the Easter Bunny goes above and beyond (literally) to make sure all his friends have a special treat. It teaches that generosity and kindness goes a long way – a valuable lesson EVERYONE can learn from!

The Littlest Bunny in Canada by Lily Jacobs & Illustrated by Robert Dunn

It’s Easter morning, and the littlest bunny has a big secret: he’s actually the Easter Bunny! He has a lot of work to do! Join him as he hides eggs high and low, with a final stop at your house!

A wonderful adventurous tale about a bunny who travels all of Canada in one night to bring treats to little boys and girls. We loved that Winnipeg was included!

How to Catch the Easter Bunny by Adam Wallace & Illustrated by Andy Elkerton

Is this the year you’ll be able to catch the Easter bunny in action? Start an Easter tradition with this fun and funny children’s book, from the New York Times bestselling creators of How to Catch a Leprechaun!

This has got to be my favourite one of the bunch – the weird and wacky things some people would do to catch the E.B is HILARIOUS!

    I’d use carrots for bait of course! I’d lure him into a box and drop the lid on him.

    I’ve tried and it’s definitely a difficult task to accomplish. I’ve tried luring him with carrots, catching him with a net but all to no avail. He’s got a 3rd sense for danger and is way to quick for me to catch him I fear. This year I’m going to put out some banana pieces for him, maybe he’s not the carroty sort of bunny.

    What a funny question. I asked my 5-year old how she would do it and she told me that she wouldn’t because if she caught him, then none of the other boys or girls would get their Easter treats. What a thoughtful kid. Love her to bits.

    Hmmm, I would have to use bait and trap him somehow because there is no way I would be able to catch the that little bunny.

    I would leave a trail of candy.
