Picture Book Basket // March

In the spring,
at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.

—Margaret Atwood

In March, we are out of doors most afternoons, our rubber boots and fingernails caked in mud. We delight in rainbows and mud puddles and any little living thing popping up from the soil. We're going out to the garden again and looking forward to planting day. This month's stack of books celebrates playing outside in the dirt and mud and rejoices in the beauty of the earth coming alive once again. Spring is on its way!
