April and Easter Book Shelf

Somehow this first week of April has flown right by.  It was a yucky, rainy week and I'm not feeling in the most spring-y mood, so I've been dragging my feet a bit when it comes to thinking about fun spring things for my book highlight. We also started out the month with a little tummy bug for E, who thankfully recovered quickly, and just in time to enjoy some extra time with his Daddy home on vacation! With those little distractions I am just getting the shelf changed over to highlight some of our Easter books now.  Hopefully I can get my act together and do a better highlight into our next set of books and activities.

What we are reading this month:

"The Velveteen Rabbit" by Margery Williams:

We have three different versions of this classic!  I truly love this timeless story of a special and loved little bunny and his journey to becoming "real".  It makes me a tiny but emotional to remember the special things that were real to me throughout childhood.  It also causes me to pause and think about the beloved friends that are "real" to my little ones.  

Our three copies of "The Veleveteen Rabbit" include the original, a board book, and an abridged picture book. 

Fun to compare:  The scene where the Velveteen Rabbit becomes Real

"Duck and Goose: Here Comes the Easter Bunny" by Tad Hills:

Another adventure with Duck and Goose that is silly fun for toddlers.  Duck and Goose search for a place to hide in order to catch a glimpse of the Easter Bunny.  They check out lots of silly places, but end up falling asleep before they see the  mysterious bunny!

What came first--the duck, the goose, or the egg?

"Disney Bunnies: All Ears" by Calliope Glass

A quick, fun, interactive toddler read.  With attached flexible, furry ears, to help Thumper express how he is feeling, this book is a cute way to talk about some basic emotions.  Of course, E loves any book with an interactive component.

Hello there, Fuzzy Ears

"Where are Baby's Easter Eggs?" by Karen Katz

This bright and cheery book is perfect for spring and would be so cute in a little one's Easter basket.  It is part of the popular series of Baby's lift the flap while searching adventures.  This time we get to help Baby look for Easter eggs, but find some fun spring surprises along the way!

Kinda jealous that Baby found a garden with gingham and polka dotted flowers...
My goal this week is to do some quick, cute Easter crafts or activities and get a blog up, so stay tuned for that!  And I am excited to share our Easter basket books once that silly bunny delivers them! Cya then!
