Yay it is nearly Easter. I love this time of the year: the start of Spring, better weather, lambs skipping in the fields and nearly Arthur’s birthday.
I thought I would share with you some of the books we’re going to be reading over the next few weeks. Some are Easter related, others are Spring, outdoors and animal type books.
First up we have Spring is Here – we already have the Autumn is Here book and Arthur has been so sweet at identifying things relevant to different seasons.
Next up, two Easter books – a Spot one for Teddy as he loves flap books and the Usborne Easter Story; we’re not super religious, but I do think it is nice for the boys to learn about why we celebrate this tradition.
I don’t think you can get through Easter without some Beatrix Potter references – Easter is about nature and new life and the Beatrix Potter stories are just perfect to read at this time of year.
We love the Usborne ‘Peep Inside’ books – they are so educational and interactive, for babies and even older toddlers. As so much is starting to come to life in the garden, this book is great to get the boys interested in nature.
This ‘Our Garden Birds’ Book is beautiful and Matt Sewell is such a unique illustrator – he’s from my home town, Shrewsbury, and I was lucky enough to go to an evening class with him and obtain this signed copy for Arthur. We are going to start trying to identify the birds in the garden using this.
This ‘Wiggle March’ Indestructibles book is brilliant for a younger baby; it can be chewed, screwed up and is quite literally indestructible. This particular one is lovely and has pictures of different baby animals -Arthur has loved showing Teddy what each animal is.
‘Guess How Much I Love You’ is one of our favourite stories and is probably on the boys’ shelf all year round. Keeping with the rabbit Easter theme, it is staying put on their shelves for Easter.
Finally, Thomas saves Easter!! Of course he does… he’s a a hero!
I’d love to hear what books you’ll be reading with your little ones this Easter.
