I absolutely adore spring…mostly because I detest winter. (Cold weather turns me into an actual bum.)
But once the days start to get longer and the weather starts to get warmer, I come alive! And it’s a wonderful time to explore changing seasons with our students.
This year, I want to put a greater focus on spring reading, so I put together a list of 50 spring books for kids!
These spring books for kids are great for talking about the change of seasons. They’re also a nice introduction to weather, spring animals, and plants!

50 Engaging Spring Books for Kids
This list of books about spring includes both board books and picture books. So there are appropriate selections for preschoolers and early elementary students.
Some of the non-fiction books may even be good for upper elementary students, depending on their reading level.
How to Use Books about Spring with Early Learners
When you’re ready to share one of these spring books for kids with your students, try opening by asking the class what they already know about the topic.
For example, if you’re reading the book “How Do We Know It’s Spring”, start by asking questions like:
- How can you tell springtime is here?
- What does the weather look like?
- What do the trees look like?
- Are there any animals you see around us?
As your students answer, help them remember what’s been said and then compare what they already know with what they learn from the book later.
If you are working on a spring-themed unit, share a book together and then complete a craft. Here are a few spring crafts that may work well with these:
- Coffee Filter Flower Craft
- Toilet Roll Baby Chick Craft
- Paper Cone Bee Craft
- Coffee Filter Rainbow Craft
