Easter holiday reading
April 6, 2017

The Easter school holiday is a great time to borrow our Touch to See picture books. Take the time to relax, eat a hot cross bun or an Easter egg or two, and enjoy our top picks of the season.

We recommend….

Little Lumpty by Miko Imai

Tactile picture of Little Lumpty on wall

We have to include a book about an egg! Little Lumpty lives in Dumpty and dreams of following in the footsteps of the famous Humpty and climbing the high wall. One day he gets a ladder and climbs but things don’t go exactly as he hoped…..

This is a lovely picture book for children aged 5 -7 years.

Mole’s Sunrise by Jeanne Willis and Sarah Fox-Davies

Mole, Vole and Bluebell

The perfect book to enjoy as spring flowers bloom. Mole’s friend, Vole, takes him on a walk through the bluebell woods. Mole had thought he’d never know the beauty of the sunrise but Vole, and his other friends, bring it alive by describing it to him. A beautifully written and illustrated book, you’ll love the tactile pictures of Mole and his cosy home.

Sitting Ducks by Michael Bedard

The book cover for Sitting Ducks

A humorous tale for older children (7-11 years) about life in the Colossal Duck factory. Here a steady supply of ducks is hatched, destined for the plates of hungry alligators. One day an alligator working in the factory befriends a duck and takes him home. How can such a friendship survive in an alligator-eat-duck world!

Other Easter-themed books in our library include The Little Red Hen, Handa’s Hen, Five Little Ducks and In the Rain with Baby Duck. Browse our online library and place your order today.
