Spring is in the air! We are excited about all of the warm weather and budding flowers.
Below are several books that are perfect for different ages – all focusing on the joys of spring!
A Stick is an Excellent Thing by Marilyn Singer
Marilyn Singer and LeUyen Pham celebrate universal types of play, from organized games such as hide-and-seek and hopscotch to imaginative play such as making mud soup or turning a stick into a magic wand. Lyrical poems and bold illustrations capture the energy of a group of children in one neighborhood as they amuse themselves over the course of a summer day.
Spring Walk by Virginia Snow
After a long winter’s sleep, the soil is springing to life. Spring flowers break through the ground to welcome warmer days. Come with Grammy and her grandchildren as they explore and learn all about 24 different flowers. Once home, she teaches them how to plant their own flowers from seeds and make beautiful bouquets.
Mud by Mary Lyn Ray
An ode to muddy hands and feet, brown earth, and new grass
Simple text and exuberant illustrations will make children and their grown-up friends want to sink their feet into gooey, gloppy, mucky, magnificent mud.
It’s Spring! By Linda Glaser
A child observes the arrival of spring and its effects on plants and animals. Includes suggestions for nature study projects.
Jack’s Garden by Henry Cole
“Building on a rhyme that will be familiar to many children, author-illustrator Cole creates an enticing guide to creating a garden. ‘This is the garden that Jack planted…’ The final illustration presents a satisfied-looking boy surrounded by a lush, bird-filled flower garden.
