Springtime Book List!
What does SPRING look like or smell like to you? I realize some of my favorite things about spring are: rain showers, blossoming flowers, birds chirping, new baby animals & fresh cut grass.
I've nearly found at least one children's book that deals with one of these aspects of spring. I have included book links to www.kidsbooks.com (which is one of my new favorite online bookstores, especially when I find good deals!)
Please check out & enjoy this list of 20 children's picture books about spring! I would love to hear some of your favorites too!
1. Hedgehugs & the Hattiepillar
by: Steve Wilson
(This has to be one of the most darling books of ALL time; it deals with hedgehogs who become friends with a caterpillar & then watch its life cycle transformation into a butterfly. There's a little twist/surprise at the end & my son loves this one!)
2. We Are the Gardeners
3. Shake a Leg, Egg!
4. Little Blue Truck Springtime
(The Little Blue Truck series is always a hit at my house! The cute rhymes and friendly nature of Little Blue as he beep beeps around are even more endearing as he meets all the baby animals in this book.)
5. You're my Little Bunny
by: Claire Freedman
(We have some of her other soft-cover books & really love them. The bear one is our favorite!)
6. Hop Little Bunnies
7. Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!
by: Kenard Pak
8. Baby Bird
by: Andrew Gibbs
(A little reminiscent of the message in the Ugly Duckling, this is an endearing story about a little bird who has difficulty learning to fly.)
9. Bears & Blossoms
by: Shirley Parenteau
(These are the same bears from Bears and a Birthday, which is another really cute one!)
10.Clifford's Spring Clean-Up
by: Norman Bridwell
(This is Clifford the big red dog; we are big fans of him here at our house!)
