When I was a preschool teacher, the spring unit was one of my favorites and I think it was one of my students’ favorites too. Seeds and flowers and baby animals are always lots of fun. There are many spring books for kids, both picture books and chapter books. This is also a great opportunity to explore non-fiction books for kids.
