Hello Spring, Adios Winter

Winter, you've been good to us this year, but we will happily say goodbye. The weather outside may already feel like spring, but spring doesn't officially start until March 19. The kids are looking forward to finally enjoying some play time outside. I'm looking forward to seeing the blooming gardens.

All around the forest everyone is busy preparing for winter, except little bear. He's just too excited about his first spring. Maurice cannot wait and he sets off intent on Finding Spring and he does! But wait, did he really find spring?

Learn all about Spring, from the position of the sun on the vernal equinox. You can also try some of the suggested activities.

Before you see the first signs of spring Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, there is a whole world of busy workers preparing the soil. From spring to winter, the vegetable garden is busy both above and underground.

With a "Coo,coo! Cheer, cheer!" we hear the first sounds of spring. But Have You Heard the Nesting Bird?

Check these books out to add a little more spring to your step!
