Welcome to the sixth month of my series inspired by the Beauty and the Beast character, Belle, called Belle’s Book Corner. Once upon a time in a land that was faraway there lived a castle that was full of books. A woman who lived there, she called herself the Librarian, had cast a spell on the castle. All who entered this magical castle will watch their imaginations soar farther than ever before! This enchanted castle is where Belle’s Book Corner will meet the first of every month. What is the name and location of this enchanted castle you ask? Why your local library of course!
I have tried since their birth to instill a love for books in both of my children. Just as you will see Belle wandering about her daily tasks while reading a book. That this is how most days you will find Beck and Elizabeth going through their days. I firmly believe that books can open a brand new magical world for all of those young and old readers.
This month we are traveling through our magic mirror to visit our local library to find books all about the theme of spring! The coloring versions of the bookmarks are such a hit that I decided to continue that style for this month’s free bookmark to help entice your child/student into their library adventure to search for spring books. Make sure to also check out all of my previous years of spring themed activities.
Spring is always so refreshing, not only for adults, but also for children who may not have been able to actively play outdoors with the cold weather as often as they normally would. When children go outdoors after a long cold winter, such as many of you have had this winter, they can see new growth and life all around them. I did consult my local librarian to make sure that the majority of these titles are well known and popular enough that most libraries will have copies available to borrow in their system. While visiting our local library children’s section recently we found these wonderful selection of spring themed storybooks that we wanted to share with all of you:
- The Curious Garden
- Spring Is Here!
- And Then It’s Spring
- Planting a Rainbow
- The Tiny Seed
- Clifford’s Spring Clean-Up
- How Robin Saved Spring
- Mouse’s First Spring
- Marley Springs Ahead!
- Sorting Through Spring (Math in Nature)
- Spring Is Here
- The Little Lamb
- Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Do You Know Me?
