This spring we have discovered a few more favorites to add to last year’s long list of children’s books for springtime.
The Tiny Patient by Judy Pederson is a sweet tale about a little girl and her grandmother who rescue and nurse to health a little sparrow found with a broken wing. Brief text and lovely, warm illustrations make this one perfect for 1-3 years.
Mirabelle by Astrid Lindgren (the author of Pippi Longstocking and the Tomten books) is a charming and unexpected tale. A poor farming girl does a kind deed and is rewarded with magic seeds. Once planted and watered the seeds grow a perfect little doll – Mirabelle. My 5-year-old can’t get enough of this story, which I feel would fascinate doll-lovers 2 and up.
When we took home Linnea’s Windowsill Garden by Cristina Bjork, I didn’t know what to expect. If your children love plants, like mine do, this book is a “how-to keep plants” resource written in a playful story form that’s just right for little ones. We’ve learned how to make cuttings, water properly and more. The text is loosely divided into chapter-like episodes.
