With Easter coming up just around the corner I am always on the hunt for non-candy additions that don’t break the bank! This year I have a few book choices for you to include in your children’s Easter baskets.
If you haven’t noticed I love books. I love to read them myself, give for gifts and read to my children. The best part of my day is when my daughter snuggles into the chair for her nighttime before bed book. These selections are great for a variety of ages and are fun and colorful too. Your kids will love unwrapping them this Easter.

There are bunny ears to wear (for the dog and cat, too) and an Easter basket to put out before bedtime. What will Baby find inside it the next morning?
