“I ordered more garden beds,” I told my husband and kids.
Despite the fun and festivities of winter, one anticipation as the cold season draws to an end are the first signs of spring. Pleasant weather, more sunshine, and of course, gardening in our backyard.
Because even we Los Angelenos still struggle through the cold days and nights of winter when it’s too cold to plant anything new. And with the deluge of rain we’ve had over the last few months, we’re ready for a bit more sunshine.
That’s why when the weather warms and spring is in full swing, so is our garden. There’s an excitement outdoors when spring arrives and the weather feels just right.
Gardens are just one sign that spring is here. Spring activities also mark the season’s arrival, from nature outings to picnics to all the events that warmer weather lets us do (ahem: finding eggs!).
Children’s books about spring
And what better way to mark the new season than through reading children’s books about spring?
I compiled my favorites to share with you, just in time to read with your kids. I borrowed most of these books from the library, while a few others we already owned, to learn more about this time of the year.
For instance, learn how animals transition out of hibernation as well as how insects change from one form to another. Talk about how the next few months of spring are the prime time for growth and changing life cycles for many species, especially after a long hiatus.
