Books are immensely powerful.
Earlier this week I read the SILLIEST book to a group of little ones I teach, and most of them declared it was their "favorite book ever". They were all so engaged, giggling, and generally enthralled.
We created a memory I am sure.
The more you read to your children the more memories you create.
Some of our most fond reading memories come from books tucked in an Easter basket, read aloud outside during the beautiful spring weather, or about various animals that seem to surface when spring arrives.
I hope you enjoy this list of our favorite spring books!
(And when you are done with this, go check out my list of easy spring crafts -- pairing a book and a craft can be fun, too!)
Favorite Spring Chapter Books
Spring signifies new life, hope, and rebirth. The following books all have a special place in my children's hearts - and in mine, because I got to share these books with them.
That is why authors like E.B. White and Thornton Burgess are among my favorites for springtime reading.
The first book is my ULTIMATE favorite. I have a memory of my then 5 year old son sitting in the back of our van listening intently to the audio of this book -- during the very sad ending he was sniffling and crying - looking out the van window so I wouldn't see him cry.
Favorite Spring Picture Books
I love to keep seasonal baskets of books available in our home.... we have a Christmas basket, spring basket, summer basket, etc... It makes the books seems fresh and new at the time and also helps me keep them organized!
What's really fun is when your kids are in their teen years and you pull the basket out and they want to sit and read the books AGAIN.
