RELATED – Farm Books for Kids
I love sharing books with my kids, not only is it a great way to learn about a subject together but it’s the perfect excuse to snuggle up together and have some quiet time.
As a mum and an ex-bookseller I like to try and add a couple of themed books to my kids collections when the opportunity arrives and Easter gives us a great opportunity to do so with books about the Easter story as well as books about rabbits, stories linked to their favorite cartoon characters and children’s books about Easter egg hunts.
