Spring officially starts on March 20. Celebrate the budding season with these reads for kids.
A boy and his dog explore the countryside, greeting the elements of nature that they meet and noting how the environment is changing from winter to spring.

Who doesn't love a great story. Fairy Tales and Folktales have been passed down from generation to generation, and this February 26th, which is Tell Me a Fairy Tale Day, cuddle up in a favorite spot at home and read your favorite Fairy Tale or Folktale with someone you love.
The drive to pass down stories from generation to generation is a trait that cultures across the world have in common. Some of these fascinating stories are called folktales, and many are still beloved hundreds of years after they were first told. Readers will learn the characteristics that folktales across cultures share. They'll discover that fables, fairy tales, and tall tales all fall within this category, and they'll learn famous examples of each--such as the Tortoise and the Hare, Paul Bunyan, and Cinderella --accompanied by appealing artwork.
