Hurray for Spring! by Martha Hubbard
All Grades. Hurray for Spring! is a whimsical welcome to a child's favorite season. A delightful, rhyming text with lots of fun words-like jumpity, thumpity, scampering, and skittering-makes this a wonderfully cadenced anthem to spring. Adorable illustrations with larger-than-life details spring off the page. This fanciful book ends with a splash and will inspire little ones to explore their own springtime world.

Looking for Easter by Dori Chocanas
Grade 3-8. Little Bunny can sense something new in the air, and it smells like sunshine and warm breezes. "It smells like Easter!" his friends tell him. But Little Bunny wonders: what is Easter? So he sets out through the forest on an early spring day to find out... This sweet, simple story by Dori Chaconas conveys the spirit of the season through nature, while Margie Moore's gentle, detailed watercolors reveal the new life of springtime.
