10 Picture Books to Celebrate Spring

This collection of picture books pays tribute to the best parts of spring.
on March 22, 2015

I love spring. Flowers start to bloom. Leaves start to appear on the trees. Longer days mean more time to play. Everything is new again. Of course, it wouldn't be spring without the wind and the rain -- but that just means opportunities for puddle jumping and kite flying, right?

Creativity and imagination spring to life when books are read. Everything is made new and fresh as connections are made, questions are pondered, and new ideas are formed.

Celebrate spring with your kids by snuggling up with one of these children's books. This collection of picture books pays tribute to the best parts of spring. Happy reading and happy spring!
