For each liturgical season and holiday I love to gather picture books to read with my kids. My poor librarians never get a break. Here is the pile I've collected for Holy Week and Easter, although more are on the way!
After our nightly prayer time during Advent the kids unwrap an Advent/Christmas book for their bedtime story. Even although they don't get to keep the book, as it is from the library, there is something about unwrapping it that makes the story more special. I decided last year to start wrapping up Lent and Easter books as well for after our nightly Lenten prayer time.
|The purple books are for Holy Week and the gold books are for the Easter Octave.|
Here is the list of books we are using for this year!
Palm Sunday - The Donkey that No One Could Ride

Holy Tuesday - Petook
Holy Wednesday - The Story of the Easter Robin
