Spring Picture Books

A Light Exists in Spring

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

— Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson captures the magic of Spring’s arrival following the cold, dark days.  As I  walk outside I see signs of new life all around – buds budding, trees blossoming, birds chirping, nests being made and of course longer days.  The seasons are such a gift.

Here are a few of our favourite Spring picture books and poems:













Enjoy Spring!
