Bunnies, chicks and eggs symbolize new life, so you can see how they are associated with Easter. Butterflies also symbolize Easter. The butterfly’s life cycle illustrates the life of Jesus Christ. The first stage, as the caterpillar, stands for Jesus' life on earth. The second phase begins from the cocoon, portraying the crucifixion and burial of Jesus. The third and final stage, as the butterfly, represents resurrection.
Plymouth Library offers books about Easter customs and traditions and stories about Easter bunnies. There is even a book to tell you what to do with that cute little chick someone gave your child! (Free-range chicken gardens: how to create a beautiful, chicken-friendly yard/Bloom, Jessi. 636.5 BLO). More suggestions:
