Needham Library Suggests Spring Reading for Kids

Spring has sprung... or at least it’s trying to!

The Needham Library has put together a list of spring books for children that includes stories about Easter, Passover, and other family oriented reads…

Here is a sampling:

Schnur, Steven. Spring: An Alphabet Acrostic.

Schotter, Roni. Passover!
Rhyming text describes a family’s celebration of Passover.

Stevenson, James. Mud Flat Spring.
The animals of Mud Flat celebrate the coming of spring in their own ways.

Stoeke, Janet Morgan. Minerva Louise and the Colorful Eggs.

Wells, Rosemary. Max Counts His Chickens.
On Easter morning, when Ruby finds all ten of the marshmallow chicks hidden by the Easter Bunny, Grandma must quickly think of a way to make things fair for Max.
