Spring time means the dreary days of winter are behind us, and bright sunny days are ahead. I love watching flowers bloom and turn the world into a more colorful place. Today’s book and Spring activities recognize that the wait for Spring can be a long one, but one that is definitely worth it!
And Then It’s Spring was written by Julie Fogliano and illustrated by Erin E. Stead. The story follows a young boy and his dog as they plant seeds and wait for Spring to bring color back to the world. The simple text and whimsical illustrations provide the reader with the same longing feeling as the boy. As they continue waiting for Spring to finally arrive, they worry that something has happened to their seeds, and the world will stay brown. Kids may recognize themselves in the boy as he anxiously awaits the return of green. This book is a fun read for the Spring season, and provides lots of opportunities to have some Spring-inspired fun.
