3 4, er, Thursday - Chicks, Chocolate and the Easter Story

Thursday is the new Friday!

We have three picks for Easter books if you are looking for some last-minute gifts for family and friends . . . but as always come in for any special recommends if you need to delight and amuse family and friends this Easter break (with the added treat of an Easter Egg Hunt in the shop with both instant chocolate prizes and the chance to enter a raffle with a first prize of £40 of Usborne books).

'On Easter Day In The Morning' is a colourful picture book that recounts the events of Jesus' resurrection, in a fashion that is easily understandable for young children. This seasonal book is the perfect way to teach children about another aspect of Easter, aside from all the chocolate!

'Peter Rabbit - Easter Egg Hunt' is an interactive and fun story featuring a classic and beloved children's character. Full of things to pull, flaps to lift and pop-up pictures, the book brings to life this playful short story that young children will have lots of fun reading.

Two picture books we love at the moment - and we couldn't decide between them, so here's both of them.

Both are fun to read, teach children their numbers and have an Easter theme - what could be better? 'Six Little Chicks' by Jez Alborough and 'Splosh!' by David Melling are full to the brim of colourful pictures of fluffy new-born animals.

Perfectly cute - and 'Six Little Chicks' comes with the Mostly Books storytime guarantee, a big thumbs up from some of our younger customers who have listened to the story in recent weeks. Who's getting closer to the hen house? Will the chicks survive? Excitement, danger and a palpable sense of menace (although it all turns out OK, promise!) 

Whatever you do this Easter, keep warm, spend time with those you love - and pick some good reading. Come in if we can help with recommendations on that score...Happy Easter from everyone at Mostly Books!
