Have your kids come inside with their hands covered in dirt yet? Mine have! My children have been enjoying climbing rocks and watching things grow on our acreage, so it’s only natural that we’ve begun digging into our DK books for Spring!
Spring is such an exciting time, especially for those of us lucky enough to live in forested and floral areas! The grass gets long and green, the flowers bloom into bright purples and pinks, and creatures climb out of their winter dens! Around here we’ve witnessed squirrels, bunnies, humming birds, and even a cougar!
When my kids happen across a certain animal or amphibian, they automatically become curious about how they live their lives. Where do they sleep? Why do they move the way they do? Where are their babies? I love to feed this curiosity and it’s so handy to have DK books for Spring on hand.
