Everyone is happy to see spring return after a long winter. Here is a collection of unique seasonal poems and beloved stories that celebrate spring with children 3-7 years old. One of my favorites is about a girl who loves willows, which is wonderful to act out with puppets. Enjoy the tales of a lonely mouse and a spring violet, find out what happens to a shining star that longs to live on earth, discover who sleeps in the tulip cradles, find out who wakes up little brown bulb, enjoy a jolly leprechaun tale, for what is spring without a leprechaun! There are many more poems and stories to delight any young child. This is a very useful spring resource for teachers and parents to use in classroom and home. I love to help create wonder about the seasons and nature through story. Included is a page of seasonal finger puppets to enjoy.
