It’s Spring!

Simple text and bold, beautiful paper sculpture convey the animal life, plant life, weather, colors, clothing, and feelings associated with the spring season.

When Spring Comes

The award-winning, bestselling husband-and-wife team of Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek collaborate for the first time since their acclaimed picture book Birds. Before spring comes, the trees are dark sticks, the grass is brown, and the ground is covered in snow. But if you wait, leaves unfurl and flowers blossom, the grass turns green, and the mounds of snow shrink and shrink. Spring brings baby birds, sprouting seeds, rain and mud, and puddles. You can feel it and smell it and hear it—and you can read it!

Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms

Fletcher loves everything about spring: listening to the birds sing, smelling just-opened flowers, and playing chase with butterflies. But then Fletcher sees something he never expected to see in spring: snow. Oh, no!

My Spring Robin

When spring arrives, a young girl looks everywhere for the robin who sang for her last year. She sees all the sights and sounds of the new season: a blooming crocus, a buzzing bee, a colorful magnolia tree, a brief rain shower…but where is the robin?

Hello, World! Weather

Young children are fascinated with weather and the seasons. Now here’s a Hello, World! board book that takes readers through a year of changes in a backyard—and points out the different clothes they wear to keep them comfy in winter, summer, spring, and fall.

Oh Say Can You Say What’s the Weather Today?

The Cat and company travel by hot air balloon up and into various weather phenomena including rain, snow, thunder, tornadoes, and (yikes!) even hurricanes! Along the way they learn about thermometers, anemometers, wind vanes, cloud formations, humidity, fog, smog, weather folklore, and how to stay safe in lightning. Written and illustrated in Seussian style, this a great addition to the Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library!

Tree

Through a hole in the book’s cover, an owl invites you inside to meet a majestic tree and all its forest inhabitants during the changing seasons. With clever peekaboo holes throughout, each page reveals a new set of animals playing and living in the tree—baby bears frolicking in the spring, bees buzzing around apples in the summer, squirrels storing nuts in the fall, and finally the lone owl keeping warm during the winter chill—until another year begins….

Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo!

Little things can have a big impact, as in this funny Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss (writing under the name Rosetta Stone) and Michael Frith. When a little bug sneezes, he unknowingly sets off a hilarious chain reaction that wreaks havoc clear across town. From a toppled turtle to a sinking ship to a disrupted circus parade, Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo! takes a hysterical look at consequences in a way that only Dr. Seuss can.

And Then it’s Spring

Following a snow-filled winter, a young boy and his dog decide that they’ve had enough of all that brown and resolve to plant a garden. They dig, they plant, they play, they wait . . . and wait . . . until at last, the brown becomes a more hopeful shade of brown, a sign that spring may finally be on its way.

Planting a Rainbow

This educational and enjoyable book helps children understand how to plant bulbs, seeds, and seedlings, and nurture their growth. Lois Ehlert’s bold collage illustrations include six pages of staggered width, presenting all the flowers of each color of the rainbow.

Spectacular Spring

Curious George Plants a Tree

When George finds out that the science museum is planning a “Green Day” dedicated to recycling and planting trees, he is curious and wants to help out! But then George begins to recycle things around town that aren’t quite ready for the recycling bin, and he gets into a jam. Thankfully, George isn’t the only one who wants to help—the whole community can’t wait to lend a hand!

The Little Gardener

Discover what it takes to become a little gardener with this interactive board book that’s perfect for spring and summertime reading.

Cherry Blossoms Say Spring

In the style of the Picture the Seasons books, Cherry Blossoms Say Spring looks at the life cycle of a cherry tree, the history behind the gift of the Japanese cherry trees to our nation’s capital, and the association of cherry trees and spring. Vibrant scenes from the Cherry Blossom Festival and the flood of visitors to the Tidal Basin are balanced with shots of the natural beauty of these trees. Nothing captures spring quite so iconically as cherry trees in Washington, D.C., and this portrait of them evokes the awe countless Washington, D.C., visitors and residents have experienced over so many years.

Springtime Babies

Join the barnyard parade as Pony and Gray Goose go in search of animal babies just born on the farm. There are “bunnies in a basket and ducklings in a row,” and of course piglets and fluffy lambs! But there are more babies to love when all the animals find the farmer and his wife holding their very own twins!

Everything Spring

We think of spring and we feel warmer, sunny days, we smell the freshness of nature’s flowers blooming again, and we picture little chicks and furry bunnies. These adorable baby animals are fun to look at and they represent the spirit of renewal and life that is spring. Every young creature finally ventures outside to play as the dreary days of winter fade away and color surround us all. Spring is about being outdoors enjoying all that our wonderful planet has to offer—it’s about living life to the fullest.

Spring is finally here! Corduroy and friends enjoy the springtime weather—the sun is shining and flowers bloom everywhere. They decide to plant a beautiful flower garden that they can take care of and share together. Celebrate the rejuvenating season of spring with Corduroy and four pages of springtime stickers.

Is it Warm Enough for Ice Cream?

Winter, spring, summer, and fall are each represented by a vibrant outdoor scene revealing seasonal changes, from ponds freezing over, to baby birds leaving their nests for the first time. And with changes in weather come new things to try: it’s windy enough to fly a kite and spin pinwheels; it’s rainy enough to splash in puddles, use an umbrella, and search for worms; it’s snowy enough to build a snowman, go sledding, and drink hot chocolate. But is it warm enough for ice cream? When we reach the bright sun of the summer spread, we hear the answer: Yes it is!

Teaching the spring unit is so fun for little learners as they explore the different parts of spring! It’s fun for us too as we get to watch them learn. Grab some fun and exciting books along with this spring unit and explore all the different aspects of spring.
