Our favourite Spring books for babies
We love animals, especially baby animals and Spring is the perfect time to celebrate this! We have picked out a selection of our favourite Spring books that make the most of rhyme, patterns and animal noises! Here are some of our favourite reads for Springtime and Easter, for more information and recommendations have a look at our post Story Time for Babies.
That’s not my chick
by Usborne books
This book is part of the That’s not my… collection by Usborne and features a variety of tactile elements for baby to touch and feel on every page!
The rhyming rabbit
by Julia Donaldson
Rhyming language positively contributes to babies’ language development and this story has it by the bucket load!
We’re going on an egg hunt
by Lauren Hughes
This lift-the-flap story is about an Easter egg hunt, the language is similar to We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and is great fun for preschoolers too.
Guess how much I love you
by Sam McBratney
A modern classic about Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare and how much they love each other.
Peter Rabbit nursery rhyme time
A collection of traditional nursery rhymes with Beatrix Potter’s illustrations.
The very hungry caterpillar
by Eric Carle
A nice introduction to a caterpillar’s life before we start seeing lots of butterflies in our gardens!
The odd egg
by Emily Gravett
This is one for preschoolers rather than babies and is about something unexpected in a duck’s egg.
We’ve enjoyed these stories over and over again. What are your favourite Spring books?
