Spring is one of my favorite times of the year!  Mud and dirt, butterflies and birds – there is so much to see, so much to do, and so much to learn about!  These books offer a great entry point to start exploring the fun spring has to offer!

Inspired by a collection of garden poems, Lola wants to start her own garden. Lola and her mom go to the library to find books about gardening, buy seeds, dig, plant, and wait.  Waiting for her flowers to grow is difficult, but well worth it.  Once her flowers bloom, Lola invites her friends over food, fun, and a story next to her flowers.

On a rainy day in the city one boy’s excitement about the rain is only matched by one old man’s grumpiness about it. Can the boy’s enthusiasm brighten the old man’s day? A good book to teach perspective and to show that people respond to the same situation in different ways.
