Tuesday: Weekly Book Review–Favorite Spring Book
Spring is coming, it has peeked out a few times but I know it is coming to stay soon. This morning we were busy trying on last year’s Spring clothes to see what could be passed down, thrown out or what still fits. We already did our spring cleaning (ok if I am being honest, the house cleaner did it, and WONDERFULLY) a couple weeks ago. I re-think our weekly menus, opting for fresher, simpler, lighter dinner ideas. Another thing I find myself doing is pulling certain books from the top bookshelves down to the lower ones for us to read more regularly. The books are always about flowers, the beach, sunshine, nature and playing outside. Do you find yourself doing that too?
My favorite book to celebrate Spring is, Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. It follows a Mother and child planting bulbs in fall, ordering seeds from catalogs in winter, eagerly anticipating the first shoots of spring, select seedlings in summer, “and watch the rainbow grow!” The illustrations are beautiful and bound to get you excited for spring.
