5 NEW Spring Book Recommendations For Your Kid’s Home Library {Giveaway}

  1. My Book of Rocks and Minerals: A children’s visual reference that explains what rocks and minerals are, how they form, and how they’re used, and even highlights record breakers and amazing facts.My Book of Rocks and Minerals is filled with fascinating facts about and amazing images of rocks, minerals, gems, and fossils from the deepest caves to outer space. Features introduce different categories, from crystals to glow-in-the-dark minerals, and illuminating images provide a closer look and show amazing geological formations. Kids can take their fascination even one step further and use the catalog and activity pages to help them collect and group rocks and discover how different rock types fit into the world around them. —  Both my boys have a little collection of rocks and gems they love going through the book to find out what they have. Lots of stunning pictures and easy to understand explanations on what minerals are,  where to find gems, how to create a collection and more!
  2. What’s Weird on Earth: Geography, history, STEM concepts, sociology, reading, technology, and more come together in this exciting and educational atlas that presents the world’s weirdest facts visually on maps. See hidden underground waterways and ancient patterns carved in desert sand. Learn how 29,000 rubber duckies helped scientists trace ocean currents after a shipwreck. See where lightning strikes the most on Earth, and where it never strikes at all. See maps from previous centuries to understand how people perceive the planet thousands of years ago. Planet Earth will never seem the same again. —  The perfect book for curious little minds, so many interesting facts to learn. My 7-year-old son loves to read this book.
  3. What’s that Bird?: Is that a purple martin or a blue jay? Perfect for beginning birders, What’s That Bird? is an indispensable pocket guide that includes full-color photographs and illustrations of more than 150 common birds, and instructs bird watchers how to identify different birds and how to tell them apart.  —   This book came at the perfect time for us. We just got a bird-house set up on our window last week and the kids have been enjoying bird watching. Now they can check the “What’s that Bird?” book when they want to know more about the birds stopping by. 
  4. I Can Grow a Flower: Teach your child how a tiny seed grows into a flower in this fascinating lift-the-flap garden story. A pullout height chart ends the book–a great way for children to remember how a sunflower grows, and to measure how fast your child grows, too! Through illustrations, photography, and flaps, sixteen delightful board book pages reveal the wonder of how plants grow as you follow the story of a mystery seed. How was it planted? What does it need? What will it become? — Our 4-year-old loves flap books and he enjoys reading this book. The colourful explanations are great for his age group and capture his attention fully. 
  5. Forest Life and Woodland Creatures:  Packed with fun activities, crafts, reading games, and amazing facts, kids can meet all the cuddly creatures and amazing sights found in the woods—from bunnies to bears to bugs—in this educational project book. In Forest Life and Woodland Creatures, each page has engaging photographs with clear text and simple step-by-step instructions for young readers to follow as they complete each project. Kids can get crafty as they create a pinecone owl, a bear mask, delicious berry ice pops, and much more. —  This book has some super fun activities and crafts. Perfect for little ones who love the outdoors and enjoy making fun projects, the book encourages you to get outside and collect materials from nature to use in the crafts, like seeds, grass, leaves, etc.

    We plant a lot of flowers and this year my daughter really wants to grow a pumpkin. I try and add some perennials every year as well.

  20. Elva Roberts — April 20, 2018 @ 1:12 pm (#)

    I am a flower fanatic. I check to see how many perennials have survived the winter. Then I divide any that need dividing and replant. Then I buy replacements for bare spots. I buy annuals to make a splash of color where it is needed. The nurseries love me!

    We start our vegetable gardens in the spring – with covers and slowly putter about in the gardens adding plants as the weather warms such as annual herbs, etc.

    Last year I planted tomatoes, but the dog kept eating them from the plant. This year, unfortunately, they are redoing the town water tower, so we can’t use outdoor water
