First Day of Spring!
Today is the first day of Spring and what a beautiful day it is! I'm here at the library, but I hope the rest of you can enjoy the weather and maybe even take a book and a blanket and soak in the sun while you read. Here are some spring-themed book suggestions for the littlest ones.
In Mouse's First Spring by Lauren Thompson, exuberantly illustrated by Buket Erdogan, a mouse and his mother experience the delights of nature on a windy day. In Bear Wants More, by Karma Wilson, illustrated by Jane Chapman, a bear wakes up hungry and is helped to find food by all of his forest friends. Cold Little Duck Duck, by Lisa Peters, sweetly illustrated by Sam Williams, tells the story of a little duck who arrives one spring to find his pond still frozen and waits for spring to arrive. Finally, in Signs of Spring, by Justine Korman Fontes, illustrated by Rob Hefferan, Lucy and her friends walk to school discovering all the natural signs that spring has arrived.
Of course, there are many many more great spring themed books here at the library.
