Seasonal Book Basket: Spring

A warm day and a walk to the vernal pool...

To celebrate the arrival of Spring we began migrating appropriate books to our seasonal book basket. Along the way, we had the opportunity to review and discover some new favorites:

A wonderful story about how a young moose finds his way home after wandering into a nearby village. Little ones experience what animal instincts may feel like.

We're completely smitten with this book about the wonders of animal migration. The lyrical text will captivate the wee ones and the factual blurbs will fascinate "big kids". I especially love the map on the last page which gives one a sense of just how far some animals travel.

Under One Rock explores the interconnectedness of all living things, told in a similar cumulative format as the Mother Goose classic, This is the House that Jack Built...only what could be better than bugs and slugs!

All that mud around the vernal pool had us thinking about animal tracks, so we revisited this old favorite that we found at a used book sale. Later, we did some stamping with our animal track stamps.

*More faves from our Spring Book Basket here!
