books in the basket

Our tradition for the past seven years (since the birth of our first little guy) has been to have books as the gift in our Easter baskets. This year’s books are:

For Boy 3, Spot’s First Easter.

For Boy 2, Bunny Party.

For Boy 1, Superfudge.

For me, Beautiful Creatures (can’t wait to read it!).

For my husband, it’s a toss-up. I can’t decide between Fablehaven 5: Keys to the Demon Prison and The Big Short. I kind of love that he would love both.

Any books in your basket this year?

P.S. Some of our favorite Easter Books are Humbug Rabbit, The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes, Max’s Chocolate Chicken, and Max Counts to Ten. Does anyone have any others to share?

    Hey lady! I saw your hubby today at the HOme Depot. Anyway, I loved Beautiful Creatures…well most of it. The characters were funny, strange, quirky, but endearing. I hope you like it.

    I normally do books but went the Lego route this year. And I’d vote Fablehaven 5 for your husband. It’s somewhere on my list.

    That’s lovely tradition! I also have a copy of Beautiful Creatures, but haven’t finished reading it yet. Hope you’ll like it.

    I just received 3 books in the mail earlier this week, which I’ve bought as a little Easter/spring break gift to myself: A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner, Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken, and Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. All really awesome. :]

    What a great tradition!! I should remember to do that next year. I did get boy #1 a book, but not #2 or my hubby.

    You’ll have to let me know what you think of Beautiful Creatures. I’ve been wanting to read it!

    I love to give books for Easter too. I gave my husband Ender’s shadow in his Eatster basket. Sent my nephew Ender’s Game for his Easter.

    I have that tradition too. Tanner got “How to Train Your Dragon” Adyson got “Confetti Girl” Morgan got “Dinosaurs Love Underpants” and Skyler got a lame “Wow Wow Wubbzy” book–which she loves!

    We don’t do adult Easter baskets!
