Spring Books and Craft

My book picks for April are:

An Egg is Quiet by Dianna Aston, illustrated by Sylvia Long, published by Chronicle books LLC, California. This educational story shows children all the different sizes and colors of 60 different eggs from all types of animals. The illustrations are just beautiful and the information encourages children to explore the wonders of the animal kingdom even further.

Bunnies on the Go- Getting from place to Place by Rick Walton, illustrated by Paige Miglio, published by Harper Collins, New York. This fun story tells children about all the different modes of transportation there are. It's a light hearted to look at getting from here to there.

Craft: Jelly Bean Bunny Tower
For this craft you will need a bathroom tissue cardboard tube (If you want to use them for place cards, you will need one for each guest), construction paper, tape, toothpicks and assorted jelly beans.

1.Cover the tube with construction paper in a color of your choice.

2. Draw a bunny face on white paper, color and cut it out and tape it to the top of one end of the tube.

3. Use toothpicks to hold each jelly bean and poke it through the tube going all the way around.

4. Add a name tag to each bunny tower if you are using them for place cards.
