Easter is a time when we Christians celebrate New Life. It’s when we remember the day when Jesus overpowered death in his resurrection. But do your young kids really know this? Admittedly, it’s so easy for kids to get caught up in the excitement of Easter eggs, chocolates and the Easter bunny, without knowing the true meaning of Easter. So here is a list of Easter Stories for Kindergarten, which will make great kids reading for the Easter season.
All of these books mention Jesus and parts, if not all the parts, of the Easter story. Some talk about the actual biblical events. Some use cute characters, like bears, to tell the Easter story. Most of these books are perfect for kindergarten age kids. But they are great parent read story books for younger kids as well.
