What a winter we have had in central Ohio! Spring is finally here according to the calendar! Celebrate by checking out “And Then It's Spring” by Julie Fogliano and award-winning artist Erin Stead. A boy and his dog are tired of brown winter and they dig and plant seeds. They wait and then wait and then finally it's spring and everything is green and colorful! Great for ages 4 and up.
ACHOOO! Poor Bear has a terrible cold and is tired and grumpy. Bright-eyed, cheerful mouse has come to help his friend get better. Bear and Mouse will make even someone with a bad cold want to laugh. A fantastic read aloud for all ages.
Can you spy the pets? Look through the hole in each page and see if you can guess the pets. If you like this, check out the other I Spy books by Edward Gibbs. Great fun for ages 2-5.
