“I ordered our second garden bed,” I told my family.
Despite the fun and festivities of winter, one anticipation as the cold season draws to an end is the coming of spring. Pleasant weather, more sunshine, and of course, gardening in our yard.
Because even we Los Angelenos still struggle through the cold days and nights of winter, when it’s too cold to plant anything new. That’s why when the weather warms and spring is in full swing, so is our little garden.
This doesn’t mean we’re gardening experts, by far. The first few vegetables we planted didn’t thrive, and most of the radishes were so tiny. But there’s an excitement outdoors when spring arrives, when the weather feels just right.
Children’s books about spring
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.
And what better way to mark the new season than through reading children’s books about spring?
I compiled my favorites, just in time to read with the 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, we learned how animals transition out of hibernation as well as how insects change from one form to another. We also talked about how the next few months of spring is the prime time for growth for many species, especially after a long hiatus.
