Even though the temperature is still frigid here and "they" actually said we could have snow this past weekend. (We didn't.) I think it is time to get the winter books off the shelves and pull out the spring books. You can find other picture book favorites on the Agrarian and Boy lists.
Actually, the spring books would cross into the agrarian or nature books. But I'll share a few favorites that come to mind in hopes that you'll share your favorites to add to my library list!
The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle
Endearing illustrations with a garden theme.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
More from a wonderful illustrator combining fun story, days of the week, numbers, and a butterfly life cycle.
Butterfly House by Eve Bunting
Another butterfly book with a sweet relationship of a girl and or grandfather.
The Donkey's Day Out by Ann Pilling
A sweet story of a donkey that realized the important part a donkey can play.This one could be hard to find but check your library.
Make Way for the Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
I didn't know which of McCloskey's stories to mention because they are all wonderful and fit the spring/summer theme. Make Way for the Ducklings was my daughters favorite but my berry loving son likes Blueberries for Sal and we've all enjoyed Time of Wonder and One Morning in Maine.
This year I have lupines starting on my window sill. Doesn't everyone who reads this book want to make there world more beautiful?
Chipmunk Willie by Harry Baerg
A slightly longer picture book that follows the life of a chipmunk family.
Your turn. What books do you enjoy rereading to your little people when waiting for the weather to warm?
