12 Fresh Children's Stories for Spring

Article Type: 

“Is the Spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”... “It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…” Frances Hodgson Burnett, THE SECRET GARDEN

The Vernal Equinox signals the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, when the hours of daylight and darkness are equal. It has had an auspicious significance throughout history, signaling a time of change and renewal, optimism and hope. Here in North Texas, Spring is a short season to savor when everything is fresh and new again, when the sun here in Texas actually feels good upon one’s face. We long to spend time outdoors, to see the first tulips and bluebonnets blooming, to spy the first fireflies at night and smell the freshly cut grass. The spring brings thunderstorms to Texas, sometimes frightening but often wonderfully beautiful with their lightning and gentle rumbling, adding to the vibrancy of the season.

What better time is there to enjoy reading a good book than the lovely days of spring? If the Fall and Winter beckon us to find deeper, cozier books, and Summer books find us searching for a lighter escape, the Spring could be said to be a time to enjoy books that are hopeful, optimistic and creative. Here are a few books to bring Spring to life, to enjoy while lounging with your kids in the park or on the patio.
