Easter Basket Ideas

When our kids were little, I loved filling their Easter baskets with books, games, and summer items they would need like swim gear and outdoor toys. Over the next several days, I’ll be sharing a few books that you might want to tuck into your child’s Easter basket. Click HERE to them.

Is this Easter?


Helen Yoon’s Is This? series Book 2

By: Helen Yoon

Publisher: Candlewick Press


When our kids were little, the Saturday of Easter weekend always included coloring the eggs. In Is This Easter? two groups of friends come across an egg. One group wants to paint it because it is Easter. The other group wants to cook it into an omelet. As they argue back and forth about what they want to do with the egg someone new comes along with a new idea.

You can read this aloud to explain to your kids the idea of coloring eggs and how they can be painted AND eaten. In this story, the eggs are blown out to allow the eggs to be cooked and painted. You could also boil the eggs and then paint them as well.

The characters have different ideas for celebrating and their story is an example of how to incorporate everyone’s ideas into one big celebration.

Helen Yoon is . . . very funny and very sharp. The author-illustrator of Sheepish (Wolf Under Cover), her critically acclaimed debut picture book, as well as Off-Limits and I’m a Unicorn, she is a professional illustrator and freelance concept designer. Helen Yoon lives in the Los Angeles area.
