I know that this post is really overdue. I meant to post it back in March, but sometimes this is just how things roll. In any case, maybe it will help some of you for next year.
By now you have probably figured out that I like to read books to my children that tie in with a theme. Whenever we go to the library we always find some of the greats (Mo Willems, Amy Krause Rosenthal, Jan Thomas, Lauren Thompson, etc), and sometimes a few odd picks that my kids grab off the shelves. But if there is a holiday or special event on the calendar, you can bet that I am putting those books on hold to reserve for us.
Here are some of the books we enjoyed during the Easter and spring season. For me, spring is also a time for bunnies and ducklings, so a few of those titles are included.
Fancy Nancy’s Elegant Easter
Ollie’s Easter Eggs
Pooh’s Easter Egg Hunt
Duck & Goose: Here Comes the Easter Bunny
Bunny’s Easter Egg
Chicken’s Aren’t the Only Ones: This is a really fun book about all of the different kinds of animals that come from eggs (dinosaurs and butterflies and spiders included). We had a really fun preschool day with this book, inspired by Preschool Alphabet.
