Spring into a Great Book!

On behalf of Scholastic Book Clubs, we’d like to wish you a happy first day of spring! Although the weather is chilly and it doesn’t quite feel like spring, today is the vernal equinox, which marks the first official day of the season! As you wait for the sun to shine and for the slush to melt, get ready for light sweaters and sundresses, lazy afternoons in the park, planting gardens, and best of all, spring reading! We have tons of awesome books available right now in our March catalogs that are perfect for the season. Two that immediately come to mind for me are And Then It’s Spring by Julie Fogliano (available in Spring Gift and as part of the Spring Is Here Pack in Seesaw March) and National Geographic Kids: Everything Spring by Jill Esbaum (part of the Spring Curriculum Pack in Firefly March). In the first, serene, simple illustrations bring to life a lovely friendship between a boy and his dog. They plant a garden in anticipation of spring and then patiently wait for those first signs of the season. In the second, wonderful photographs of baby animals playing outside remind us of how spring rejuvenates life in nature after the winter snow melts away. Both stories make me think of the sounds, smells, and sights that comprise spring, and exactly why it’s my favorite season.

So in honor of this equinox, spring into a great book! You might just find a little bit of warmth.
