My 5 Favorite Picture Books to Celebrate Spring in the Classroom

Picture books are a great way to teach students about many different topics, and Spring is one of my favorite times to share picture books with my class. There are so many fun stories for the spring season that teach great concepts. Today I am going to share some of my favorite stories for Spring! 

     The first book on the list is We Are The Gardeners by Joanna Gaines. This is a fun book all about gardening and the steps it takes to grow a garden. This is a great book to start a plant unit with. The message of this book is also fantastic because it helps teach the message that trying something new isn’t always easy, but the reward can be amazing. 

     The next book on the list is Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring by Kenard Pak. In this story, a little boy says goodbye to the things of Winter and welcomes in the things of Spring. This is a great book about all the changes that are coming with Spring and is always a favorite of my students! 

     The next book on the list is another perfect book for spring. It is Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. This story follows a mother and daughter in their backyard garden as they plant new seeds and see how they grow. This story helps students learn how plants grow and might even inspire them to grow their own garden. I adore the bright colors of this story and how the illustrations are created. 

     The next book, And Then It’s Spring by Julie Fogliano, is another excellent book for Spring. This is another book that focuses on growing a garden. This book follows a little boy and his dog who are both tired of all the brown after a very long, snowy Winter so they decide to make a garden. The book goes through all the steps they take to make their garden. This is another outstanding book for the start of a plant or gardening unit. 

     The last book on the list is Spectacular Spring by Bruce Goldstone. This book talks about the fun things you can do in Spring and shares all the interesting things that make Spring spectacular. It is full of beautiful photographs, wonderful explanations, and creative craft ideas. Your students will love reading about the fun ideas shared and try them out in the classroom or at home. 

     Spring is such a wonderful time to share picture books. I always enjoy seeing what books are coming out for the upcoming Spring season. Reading picture books is always one of my students' treasured times of the day, and Spring is one of the perfect times of the year to do that. What picture books do you love to read in the Spring to your students? Tell me in the comments!
