Books to Pair with this Spring-Themed Craft
Enjoy exploring the seasons in this beautiful pop-up book. Five spreads of gorgeously designed pop-up scenes show birds nesting in the spring blossom, bees buzzing in a summer meadow, the wind whipping up the colorful autumn leaves, the crisp white branches of the forest in the snow, and a whole, four-seasons pop-up tree presents a stunning finale. 3 years+ You can purchase this interactive book here.
From snails and spiders to scorpions and caterpillars, this book is full of fun things to color. The bold outlines provide the perfect way for young children to develop their pen control and coloring skills, while simple words on each page for parents or older children to read encourage a love of language from an early age. 3 years+.
