Spring picture books are some of my favorite books to read aloud! I love all the bright and cheerful spring colors.
In addition to the cheerful artwork, I love all the references to animals, gardening, and flowers. There’s just so much to love about spring picture books!
Here’s a list of our favorites. Some of these are for very young children, and some of them are suitable for older elementary kids.
Even as an adult, I still enjoy reading these! 🙂
