April Showers Bring May Flowers

Children love to get their hands dirty and April is a perfect month to start a garden. After a long day in the sun I like to relax by sitting down in my favorite chair and read a few books.  Below are the books I picked this week to celebrate Spring. Enjoy.

Books in Bloom

 The books listed below are ones that I enjoy reading each spring. My favorite book on this list is Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. This story is about a little girl named Alice, who becomes Miss Rumphius, or  a.k.a. "the lupine lady." Her goal for herself and others is to make the world a more beautiful place. This classic picture book offers charming illustrations and a meaningful message for everyone.
