I can’t believe Olivia’s first Easter will be here in just a short month. Her first year has really flown by. Time can start slowing down at any time. I’ve been working hard on coming up with the perfect Easter basket for her. I have plenty of great ideas that I have found that I will be sharing with you soon. However, my favorite idea for your child’s Easter basket is adding a few Easter themed children’s books.
Everyone knows that we are book junkies in this house. After all, Olivia already has hundreds and she is only 4 months old. Click here to read about my all time favorites for Liv. I just don’t think there is a better gift to give your child than a book. We always celebrate each new holiday with a few books. Here are some of my favorite for Easter!
