Easter sometimes feels like a second Christmas. We want to focus on Jesus. We know He’s the reason we’re celebrating, but between the eggs, chocolates, and frilly dresses, our focus drops to the celebration instead of the one we’re celebrating.

This spring let’s take Easter beyond the bunny and focus our family’s eyes back on Jesus. For years, I’ve given my kids a special devotional or journal as part of their Easter basket (Well, let’s be honest. No basket. A devotional and some candy.)

Here’s a list of some of our favorite resources over the years from my kids and me. We own and have used these resources over the last 13 years. I hope they give you some ideas this year as you seek to focus your family’s eyes on Jesus. They are broken up into age groups to make finding the perfect resource easier.

Young Children

Here you’ll find some picture books, devotionals, and Bible storybooks. These are hands down our family favorites because they are quick and easy to read, have well-done pictures, and keep a child’s interest. Unlike many children’s books that you want to hide after the fifth time, I loved reading these books year after year.

Older Kids

These devotionals and Bibles are some of my favorite ways to “sneak” God into my kids’ lives. I’m kidding. Sorta. I have all boys, and they love graphic novels. Getting them to read the “real” Bible was difficult initially, but all three gladly dove into the Action Bible (Graphic Novel meets Bible). It, and all these resources, and well done and solid scripturally. I frequently recommend them to friends and give them as gifts.


Some of these books came out this year and some I’ve turned to over and over again throughout the years. These are some of the books that have had the most impact on my walk with God over the years. I pray they do the same for you.

Are there books you would add to this list? I’d love to know about them! Please share in the comments.
