A new season is the perfect opportunity to refresh your bookshelf. These cute children’s books for spring are full of topics that fit naturally with the transition from winter to spring.
Bugs, worms, butterflies, and flowers are all perfect topics for spring. Children are are naturally curious and are observing these things while playing outside. They might even be inspired to go on a nature walk or watch butterflies develop after reading these cute stories.
At first it might seem like picture books are just for young kids. I don’t think that is true though. Kids of all ages can appreciate good books. My kids are now 10 and 13 and I still read picture books to them. I’m going to read to them for as long as they will let me.
Gather up your little ones, snuggle up on the couch, and dive into these books.
Cute Children’s Books for Spring
Because a Little Bug Went Ka-choo! by Rosetta Stone
This cute picture book is about how little actions can have big impact. A little bug sneezes and triggers all sorts of silly events. The book reminded me of something Dr. Seuss would write . . . and then I learned that Rosetta Stone was a pen name for Theodor Geisel – a.k.a. Dr. Seuss.
Worm Weather by Jean Taft and Matt Hunt
Spring seems to be a rainy season – at least this year anyway! Lots of rain usually means lots of worms squirming along the sidewalk. Put a positive spin on a rainy spring day by reading this story and then going out for a worm hunt.
What Makes a Rainbow Magic Ribbon Book by Betty Ann Schwartz
My children loved this board book when they were toddlers. It teaches about colors while adding a new color satin ribbon to the rainbow on each page. My kids thought it really was like magic when a new ribbon would appear.
Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert
Spring is a great time of year to plant a garden. Children can help! This is the perfect spring story to read before planning and planting a flower garden.
We Are the Gardeners by Joanna Gaines
Joanna Gaines wrote a children’s book! This book has simple and colorful illustrations that show the Gaines family planning and creating their garden. Things don’t go quite as planned, but that is a life lesson in itself.
Berry picking is a classic spring time activity. My family tries to go every year. We are fortunate that there is a strawberry patch just around the corner from our house so we can go just about every week. This book is a great choice to read before berry picking – or even just before enjoying a bowl of juicy berries!
Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney
This springtime classic picture book tells the tale of Alice Rumphius, the Lupine Lady, and her quest to make the world a beautiful place. How can you make everything beautiful? By adding a plethora of flowers! The beautiful flowers in this book make it one of my favorite spring books for kids. Did you know that there was actually a real Miss Rumphius?
Ten Magic Butterflies by Danica McKellar
Ten Magic Butterflies is a cute spring book for preschoolers. They will love the story line while also learning counting. This is a great way to foster number literacy in a fun environment.
