4 Books Your Kids Would Love to Get Their Hands on This Spring
Spring is a time when nature’s best features show up. It is the perfect time to introduce your kids to various colors, smells and sounds. Pick the books that you would read with your kids this time of the year carefully.
Let’s have a look at few of the best selections for reading this spring.
1. The Happy Day by Ruth Krauss
The illustrative power of this book alone works wonders. The front cover of the book is filled with bold yellow color against which black and white animals can be seen playing. The yellow represents the first flower of the spring. This book has very limited vocabulary but then it hardly needs any. It announces the arrival of spring using the images too well.
It tells the story of forest animals that wake up to see the first flower of spring blooming in the snow and begin celebrating the arrival of spring. Simple words like, ‘they laugh’ and ‘they dance’, clearly express the happiness that the forest animals are feeling.
This book will allow your kids to interpret their own feelings during winters and how they feel when it finally gets warmer.
2. The Thing about Spring by Daniel Kirk
This book is for the kids who just love winter. You can get your kids to realize that even if they can’t make snowmen, or throw snowballs at each other, there is a lot more to look forward to during spring. It is a story about a rabbit who is not too excited about the end of winter either. However its friends remind him about all the good things that come with spring.
Your kids will surely appreciate spring a lot more after you read them this one!
3. White Rabbit’s Color Book by Alan Baker
You should read this book to your child right before Easter so they don’t miss out on all the fun with painting their Easter Eggs. It is a very interesting lesson about how two colors mix and end up as an entirely different one. The story begins when a white rabbit jumps into a pot of yellow color because she is attracted to it. Then she sees a pot with red color. It seems interesting so she jumps into it too. When she jumps out, she is Orange! So, she understands that when Yellow and Red mix up they become Orange.
This will be an astounding color mixing lesson for your child.
4. Ollie’s Easter Eggs by Olivier Dunrea
It is the story of 5 friends who take their Easter Eggs, dye them and then hide them for the Easter Egg Hunt except one, Ollie. In the beginning of the story, Ollie seems like the careless one not dying his eggs. Then it is revealed that he had stolen everyone else’s eggs too because they can’t find their eggs.
However, in the end, Ollie gifts those eggs back to his friends with his own decorations in place. Your kids will love Ollie and the colorful combinations that each of the friends selects for their eggs.
