Spring Unit For Kids

Do you want to create an entire springtime unit around this paper bag frog craft? If so, keep reading below to see all of our ideas.

Reading aloud with your child provides them the opportunity to engage in a number of important developmental skills. Plus, it’s just plain fun! That’s exactly why we recommend starting out with books!

Below are some of our favorite springtime books for kids.

Too Many Carrots: This adorable book about a rabbit with way too many carrots will have your kids giggling! When he loads on too many that he can’t even go in his house, he’s on the hunt for somewhere to live. Read what happens as his friends try to help. This book is cute and has a great message of sharing!

Pete The Cat and the Cool Caterpillar: Pete’s new friend is a caterpillar! But when his best buddy goes missing, Pete has to find out what happened to him. He soon realizes he’s going to need a lot of patience to discover what exactly happened to his caterpillar!

I Don’t Want To Be A Frog: Little frog wants to be anything but, you guessed it, a frog. He tries his hand at being a cat, rabbit, pig, and owl, but he just can’t manage to be like them. All along the way, his dad encourages him to just be a frog, but it’s not until he has a surprise run-in with a wolf that he rethinks what it means to be a frog. This book is an excellent story that teaches kids about self-acceptance and what it means to be true to yourself. It’s also beautifully illustrated and captures the feeling of the characters perfectly.
