These books are chosen based around seasonal event, areas of learning and fun topics for toddlers and preschoolers and you to do together. Moving forward into Spring here’s our latest themes and featured books for this time of year. If you would like to get more information about the activities then check at the end of the post for ways in which you can follow and join in with this weekly series here on Rainy Day Mum.
Themes and Featured books for March
In March we have 4 themes which are spring and Easter related – the Easter themed weeks though could easily be adapted for us in Spring only.
March 5 – Rainbows
I love this theme as it’s gives an opportunity to talk about the weather, light and colours and is perfect for St Patrick’s Day as well. This year we have chosen the book Rainbow of My Own by Don Freeman.
March 12 – Bunnies
March 19 – Eggs
March 26 – Birds
April 9 – Zoo
One of our favourite field trips is to take the kids to Zoo. It’s a fantastic way to get them to see some of the animals they only ever see in books and on TV. Our featured book Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann is perfect to read together and make sure you plan a trip to your nearest Zoo this week.
April 16 – Community Helpers
April 23 – Frogs
Plan ahead and select some of these suggestions for Frog and Tadpole Activities and Crafts for Toddlers and Preschoolers to do this week.
April 30 – Garden
