Our Preschool Spring Reading List
Spring is finally upon us and I am so excited for warmer weather, bright flowers, and even the rain that comes during this season. This month I decided to share some awesome spring themed books that we will be reading with our preschoolers. Our oldest loved these books when he was younger so I cannot wait to introduce them to our youngest homeschool students.

If you’re familiar with this series, then you know that Fletcher often finds himself in some silly situations and this book is no different. He begins by discussing his love for spring but notices that snow is starting to fall from the sky. Out of concern, he informs all of his friends to prepare for the upcoming blizzard. But is a snowstorm actually approaching or is Fletcher merely mistaken?

After several failed attempts, Mole decides to create the perfect spring announcement breakfast for his best friend.

This book is filled with the most beautiful, exquisite, and detailed spring photography. Your young students will love looking at these baby animals experience the outdoors as the weather changes.
Glasswings: A Butterfly’s Story
