This year at sunnydaytodaymama we'll be hosting a new blog carnival, All Year Round, a quarterly link collection of spring, summer, autumn and winter posts sharing seasonal thoughts, pictures, activities, crafts, recipes, books, art, nature study, projects, celebrations and more. I'm delighted that Mama Smiles, Winding Circle, The Mahogany Way, Smiling like Sunshine and Home Baked will be co-hosting the carnival.
The All Year Round Blog Carnival: Spring begins on 15th February and everyone is invited to link up old and new spring posts. You're welcome to get a button and also share this post and let your friends know about the carnival. We're looking forward to seeing your spring links.
We've been preparing for spring for a while, including choosing books for our spring nature book basket. These are some of the spring books we've enjoyed in previous years.
I am a Frog
'I have my babies in the spring.
Lots of us gather together and
at night the mummy frogs lay eggs.'
I am a Frog by Linda Bygrave (with illustrations by Louise Voce)
The Story of the Root Children
'Mother Earth opened the door. Then out into the lovely warm spring sunshine came the stately procession of beetles, ladybirds and root-children with their blades of grass and flowers.'
The Story of the Root-Children by Sibylle von Olfers
Felix and the Dandelion
'Spring has arrived. The sun is shining brightly. The countryside is a patchwork of green and yellow meadows. Honeybees and bumblebees hum nearby. Beetles buzz through the air. Butterflies flutter from flower to flower. And there is something else whirring through the air... can you see the little red creature with black spots?
It is Felix, the ladybird.'
Felix and the Dandelion by Judith Steinbacher (with illustrations by Antonia Nork)
