Spring Reading List for Toddlers and Preschoolers

18 Books about Gardens, Ponds, and Rain to read with your Toddler or Preschooler this SpringI love reading with my kids.  It is probably my number one favorite thing to do with them.  I know it doesn’t promote physical fitness and an active lifestyle, or creativity, or social skills.  But reading and a love (or at least an appreciation) for books is such a huge gift.  There are children all across the world who don’t have access to books, and even if they did their parents are unable to read to them.  It is a simple gesture, to sit and read with your child, but shows them love and builds bonds that will last a lifetime.

We read a lot at our house.  I mean A LOT.  We have tons of kids’ books and every time I try to get rid of some, I just can’t.  We really do read all of them regularly.  Even with all the books we have, we love visiting the library to find new adventures to bring home.  This year, I am trying out focused seasonal reading lists.  Each season the kids and I will read books together that focus on a few topics.

This spring, we are going to read books that focus on gardening, ponds and pond life, and rain.  Here are the books I’ve got on our reading list this spring.  You can download the list using the link at the end of this post.

  1. As a retired elementary school principal who feels early childhood education is the best money we spend in public education, I love your list and will be sharing it with my educator friends.
