Easter is one of the best holidays ever – chocolate, hot-cross buns, Easter egg hunts, an extra-long weekend and gorgeous Autumn weather to indulge in activities with the family. Another great thing about Easter is the wonderful books available for kids to indulge in all things fluffy, chocolatey and hoppity (that’s totally a word, right?). Books are a great gift for kids at Easter to give them a little break from all the chocolate!
