Easter is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for some picture books to fill those baskets, Disney Press has some new ones that are perfect for the little ones in your life.
Pooh’s Easter Basket is an adorable board book shaped like an Easter basket, complete with gold corded handle. It’s a blustery day in the Hundred Acre Wood and when a basket blows by, Owl remembers that it’s Easter. Pooh and friends decide to fill the basket with treats for Christopher Robin, gathering a book, a scarf, a toy boat, and of course a jar of honey, and are happy to find Christopher Robin has returned the favor.
Happy Easter, Baby! is a sweet touch-and-feel book for babies who love to explore textures. Real pictures of babies are paired up with favorite Disney characters and different tactile objects. This book is part of the Disney Baby books series.
Easter is also a time for bunnies, and Thumper Finds a Friend is a cute book about making new friends. Thumper is playing tag with his friends when he comes across a hedgehog. Thumper tries his best to get this new creature to play with him, but it turns out she’s a little shy. This is great both for kids who are hesitant to make new friends and those who want to play with them.
And last but certainly not least is a new one from Mo Willems featuring that contentious pigeon. When the duckling asks for and receives a cookie, the pigeon rages against the injustice of it all. Fans of the pigeon – or Mo in general – will enjoy The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?
These are great Easter gifts for babies and preschoolers, though of course the pigeon is fun for kids of all ages. Check back throughout the week for more Easter books featuring some beloved Disney characters.
My daughter would love the Pooh Bear one! She’s currently in love with both Pooh and Easter baskets. 🙂
