Easter Walk: A Treasure Hunt for the Real Meaning of Easter by Deborah Pace Rowley

5013891_easter_walk_hcFollow Tyler and Amy as they take a much-anticipated Easter walk with their grandpa. Using clues from the scriptures, they find six objects that symbolize specific moments in the Easter story. For example, they find something sharp to remind them of the Savior’s crown of thorns and something made of wood to remind them of the cross. As they walk, they learn important lessons about Easter and its particular message for their family — and yours.

This touching story beautifully illustrates the importance of the Savior’s Atonement and Resurrection as it helps us remember the true meaning of Easter. It teaches the eternal truth that families can be together forever.

Give Easter Walk as a meaningful gift, or read it with your family. It is a great way to start a new family tradition — the Easter walk.

In his thoughtful and inspirational way, Brother Skinner offers profound insights into the culminating events of the mortal life of out Savior.

Bashful Lamb’s Naptime by Jellycat Books

Bashful Lamb has had a long day, but when his mommy tells him it’s time for bed, he wants to continue playing! He tries to get his friends duckling and calf to play with him, but they’re too tired.

Will Bashful Lamb ever give into to his sleep eyes? Or will he stay awake despite his mom and his friends?

Complete with adorable artwork and rhyming sentences, Bashful Lamb’s Naptime is sure to please both children and adults alike.

Chuckling Ducklings and Baby Animal Friends by Aaron Zenz

Here’s a puppy, there’s a kitten . . . yawning fawn and chuckling ducklings

The perfect introduction to animal names and animal groups for the youngest of kids, Chuckling Ducklings features babies of every variety. The bouncing text and adorable illustrations will become a favorite as the readers learn the special baby names that match all the grow-up animals they know and love.

Busy-Busy Little Chick by Janice N. Harrington 

Ideal for Easter and springtime, an exuberantly illustrated picture book by a New York Times bestselling artist!

Little Chick’s mother is all cluck and no action. Mama knows her old nest isn’t the cozy home she and her brood need. But whenever she vows to start building a new house, she’s distracted—by sweety-meaty worms, crunchy-munchy crickets, or picky-pecky corn. Luckily, her Little Chick is an industrious sort. While the rest of his family are stuffing themselves silly, he’s quietly working, bit by bit, day by day.

Janice N. Harrington’s retelling of a little-known Central African story is perfectly matched with Brian Pinkney’s jazzy depiction of a can-do little critter.

Easter Bunny on the Loose!: A Seek and Solve Mystery by Wendy Wax

The next On the Loose search and find book is here, and all hopped up for Easter!

The Easter Bunny can’t wait to hippity-hop his way to deliver all the Easter eggs this year! The only problem is . . . there are no eggs! Some-bunny has taken the Easter Bunny’s golden egg, and without the golden egg, Easter is on HOLD. Can you sort through all of the possible suspects hopping about Easterville and find the culprit who stole the golden egg? Be quick as a hare—time is running out!

Easter Bunny Murder by Leslie Meier

Lucy Stone has always loved covering the annual Easter egg hunt for the Pennysaver. Hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst at Pine Point, it’s a swanky event where the eggs are as likely to contain savings bonds as they are jelly beans. But when Lucy arrives, a man dressed as the Easter Bunny emerges, only to drop dead moments later. Lucy discovers the victim is VV’s grandson, and soon learns that not all is as it seems at idyllic Pine Point. Always a social butterfly, VV has been skipping lunch dates with friends, and her much-needed donations to local charities have stopped with no explanation. Maybe she’s going senile, or maybe her heirs are getting a little too anxious to take over her estate…
