Our Easter and Spring Reading

Our Easter/Spring book basket

I thought I would share a picture of our Easter and Spring book basket with you today. Thanks to a great idea from Janna, I put together a basket of Easter books and spring "friends" for the girls so everything is in a centralized spot.

Those friends have all been gathered and placed in the basket with our books; they have gotten lots of love and attention after placing them in a fresh place!

Here are some of the books that we have been reading over the last several weeks. As you will see, some are specifically spring titles and some are specifically about Easter. Also, some are ours and some are the libraries, but I have found several titles that I want to add to our shelves.
