AND THEN IT’S SPRING
By Julie Fogliano and illustrated by Erin E. Stead

“First you have brown, all around you have brown.” A hopeful little gardener plants seeds. And he waits patiently. Through delicately beautiful illustrations and simple poetic text, we wait along with the boy until “green, all around you have green.” A classic in the making, this book is, quite possibly, my very favorite springtime book. (preschool/early primary)

Up_Down_in_the_Dirt


UP IN THE GARDEN AND DOWN IN THE DIRT

By Kate Messner with art by Christopher Silas Neal

This book follows a little girl through the changing seasons as she works in the garden with her Nana. It is unique among the many garden themed books available because readers also get to see what is taking place “down in the dirt” beneath the sprouting seeds and blooming flowers. It’s a delightful read that is certain to encourage little gardeners and nature lovers. (preschool/primary)

THE LISTENING WALK
By Paul Showers illustrated by Aliki

I appreciate books that motivate us to get outside with our littles. Footsteps, sprinklers, cars and trucks, birds and bugs… sounds are all around us. But how often do we take time to truly LISTEN and explore them with our children? THE LISTENING WALK has been around since 1961 (revised in 1991) and is a proven classic. If you’ve never been on a “listening walk” I hope that this book will inspire you to do so. (toddler/preschool/primary)

 

Mama_built_a_little_nest

MAMA BUILT A LITTLE NEST
By Jennifer Ward illustrated by Steve Jenkins

A hummingbird makes a nest with a spiderweb so it can stretch. A flamingo lays a single egg in a nest made from mud. A daddy penguin nests his egg on top of his feet and underneath his tummy folds. These are just a few of the things you will learn as you read this book about birds and their nests. MAMA BUILT A LITTLE NEST is a wonderful blend of fiction and non-fiction and adaptable for many different ages. (preschool/primary)

SOME BUGS
Words by Angela Diterlizzi bugs by Brendan Wenzel

This is a book for everyone. With perfect rhythm and rhyme and endearing illustrations, even the most squeamish of littles will be eager for a bug hunt. Entertaining enough for a toddler read aloud but also detailed enough for older children; SOME BUGS transforms the creepy crawly into playful and fascinating. (toddler/preschool/early primary)
