Springtime books to read to your baby

Our create-your-own story time adventures continue after a week Upstate and visiting Lake Placid and Montreal, I'm so behind on posting, I will be posting photos from our trip soon! Here we feature some Springtime reads that we enjoyed reading at the bookstore earlier this week.

 Blowin' in the Wind by Bob Dylan and Illustrated by John J. Muth (love that this is a book, love it just like Dr. Martin Luther King' Jr's I Have a Dream speech as a book too.)
I Like Bugs By Lorena Siminovich (boardbook) (I plan to bring this book to the park this Spring and Summer and maybe Phoenix and I will find some of these bugs! It's a cool touch and feel book with colors illustrations)

And then it's Spring by Julie Fogliano
and illustrated by Erin Stead is a sweet picture book about how the earth goes from brown to green in Springtime.
Chicken Soup with Rice by Maurice Sendak, reading it again to Phoenix reminded me why this is a favorite from my childhood.  If you want to teach your baby the months of the year this is a good book to have handy, love the rhymes about chicken soup with rice and whenever I say the word chicken soup Phoenix giggles. The illustrations are simple yet very creative and it's a perfect small book to put in the diaper bag this Spring and throughout the year. Quick read too, 12 months 12-ish pages :)

Planting a Rainbow Lois Ehlert is a cute boardbook and it's based on colors and about planting seeds for flowers.

Bear Wants More byKarma Wilson and illustrated by Jane Chapman is one of the books we picked up from, we love reading to Phoenix Bear Snores On, so this Springtime read caught my eye as a day-time Bear book. Bear Wants More is a fun story to read to your baby, Bear is awake from hibernation and he is thin and hungry, his friends help him find food to eat because he keeps wanting more.

There are many great Springtime reads and we will be sharing more throughout April and May. Share with us what you are reading on Twitter with the hashtag #bookswelovetoread

Enjoy the changing colors of the trees, the growing flowers, the fresh spring air with your baby and Happy Spring!
