Sharing is caring!

As winter is winding down and spring is just around the corner, I am sharing a list of delightful children’s books for spring. With spring comes sunshine, blooming flowers, and lots of life to explore outdoors (check out this free Spring Scavenger Hunt).

However, the season also brings its share of rainy days making it the perfect opportunity to cuddle up and enjoy a sweet picture book with your little ones.  

Listed below are several sweet books to read with children during spring. Some of the books are classics that you may already own and the others can easily be accessed at your local library or online. Each photo is linked to the suggested book on Amazon.
