Spring is a wonderful time to read books aloud (well, anytime of the year is!). Here are some of my favorite spring read alouds to share in the classroom.

Spring Read Alouds
When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes
When Spring Comes is a delightful book, full of the joys of spring! Kevin Henkes uses striking imagery, repetition, and alliteration to introduce the changing of the seasons. Before spring comes, the trees are dark, the grass is brown and the ground is covered in snow. But spring brings baby birds, green grass and sprouting seeds. You can feel it and smell it and hear it!
And Then It’s Spring by Julie Fogliano
In And Then It’s Spring, a boy and his dog patiently wait for the new season to start. They decided to plant a garden. They dig, they plant, they wait…and wait…and wait…until at last, the brown becomes a more hopeful shade of brown. A sign that spring may finally be on its way!
I love how the pages in this book start off brown to match the drab of winter and gradually become more colorful as spring starts to bloom.
Abracadabra, It’s Spring! by Anne Sibley O’Brien
Abracadabra, It’s Spring! is a lyrical book that celebrates the magic of nature and the changing seasons. It is a gorgeous book exploring the transition from winter to spring. The author uses different magical terms to show the transformation of the seasons. The lift-the-flap pages add a wonderful layer of engagement!
In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb by Marion Dane Bauer
In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb describes the weather in the month of March. In the beginning, the lion wreaks havoc in the form of hards winds and cold temperatures. But, by April, the weather is more lamb-like, with the days growing longer and the flowers and tress in bloom.
