March 20th is the first day of Spring!
After this long winter, we are all ready to get out there and enjoy the outdoors. Below are 5 books that I call “oldies but goodies” to get you in the mood for Spring.
The Happy Day by Ruth Krauss—Snow is falling. All the animals are fast asleep in their animal homes. They awake. They open their eyes. They sniff. They run. What will they find? 1950 Caldecott Honor book.
My Spring Robin by Ann Rockwell—Before finding the robin she is searching for, a child discovers other interesting fauna and flora in her backyard.
Rabbit’s Good News by Ruth Bornstein—In this simple, captivating story for very young children, as Rabbit is leaving her warm dark hole, she uses all her senses to explore the telltale signs that something wonderful is happening-spring has arrived.
When Will It Be Spring by Catherine Walters—A curious little cub will not settle down for his winter’s rest until he knows “exactly” when spring will arrive. Reluctant sleepers will sympathize with the determined Alfie, even as they are lulled to rest by this gentle, charming tale.
Paperwhite by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace—Lucy and Miss Mamie while away the long hours of winter in various ways while waiting for a paperwhite bulb to grow and bring them spring.
