Library Picks for This Week with a Spring Theme

Time to take a trip to your local library! Schedule in time to stay for a good hour. Sometimes it is fun to stay at the library and read the books together rather than doing it at home. These are the books my girls and I loved this week:

We Planted a Tree by Diane Muldrow is a fantastic book about nature just in time for spring. The illustrations are bright, eye catching and unique. The text is bouncy, poetic and the perfect length to keep the attention of your kids. The book’s message is wonderful too; it teaches you to appreciate nature and the value of its preservation for the future of families throughout the world.

Song of the Flowers by Takayo Noda celebrates the flowers of spring with a nice lullaby rhyme. This is a soothing book that is perfect for bed. We love the very bright and bold colors used in the illustrations.

My Garden by Kevin Henkes is a fun story with a main character that we all fell in love with, a cute little daydreaming girl. I love the feel of the watercolor illustrations and softer colors. Umbrellas pop out of the garden when it rains and tomatoes are as big as beach balls. This little girl has fun daydreaming about her garden!

Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert is a classic that leaves me thinking I need to plant a rainbow flower garden as well. It also goes over educational things like yearly cycle and process of planning, planting, and picking flowers in a garden. The bond that the mother and child form in the book is adorable. We loved this book so much we bought it for our home library.

One Red Apple by Harriet Ziefert and Karla Gudeon is a book that seems like it came from your grandmother’s book shelf. It goes over the life cycle of an apple: from fruit growing on the tree to market, to picnic, to seed, to sapling and tree, and finally to a new apple.

Hope you enjoy our library picks this week to help you get in the mood for spring! Grab the books and read them outside under a tree with your family.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it
    looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

    The graphics on the xbox and the playstation are quite much the exact same.
    Contact of duty games are produced for the xbox and playstation just converted them to PS3.

    Illumination can make or break the ambience of any
    room and finding the right level is not difficult to do. LED’s really
    are an energy-efficient lighting solution. Generations of children grew up
    with Christmas candles on their tree every year.
    It is of no surprise that we are seeing more and more fans with and
    without lights also a variety of control options going up in so many homes, restaurants, offices, conservatories,
    hotels, bars, movie theatres, resorts, warehouses, classrooms, sidewalk cafes and even churches.
    After the initial cost, there is nothing more to pay.
