Book Sharing Monday:3 Spring Books

Today I would like to share three lovely spring books with you.

Skip through the Seasons talks about all the seasons with lots of items to spot as the months pass by. Colourful and lovely illustrations as allways from Barefoot Books.

Rose's Garden  is not a book about seasons per se but I like to think of it as a spring book as well. This is the story off a young girl named Rose; she is sailing around the world in her teapot ship and she collects seeds where ever she goes to remember the places she has been. Soon she arrives in a new town and decides to settle there. She finds an abandoned plot of land and decides to plant her garden. But when she returns to her boat, almost all her seeds have been eaten by birds. She takes the few that are left and plants them, and waits and waits. She hopes and believes that the garden will grow and bring colour to the city. But the plants just do not seem to be blooming. Then one day a child brings her a paper flower for her garden - soon all the children are bringing her flowers and her garden becomes full of beautiful flowers. Then she realizes that there are real flowers growing among the paper ones. Her faith has been rewarded. Beautiful illustrations and captivating story!

Miki and the Moon Blossom  A long time ago and very far away, Miki, Polar bear and Penguin wish for a gentle breeze.  But when their wish comes true they begin a journey to a strange new world full of weird and wonderful creatures.  Will the friends ever make it back home? A gentle story with beautiful illustrations. There are blossoming flowers as well ;)

This is the second time we borrow Miki and  Rose's  Garden from the library, such beautiful books to read at bedtime. All three books celebrate the power of nature. 
I am also linking up this post to our Spring Carnival. Have you joined in yet?
