Picture Book Basket // April

April is springtime in its prime. The seeds we planted in March begin to peek through and feed on sunshine and rain showers and the happy songs we sing. Purple violets and yellow dandelions dot the grassy fields. Tulips wave hello atop their wiry stems. And the whole town shines with blossoming trees and vivid shades of green. In April we celebrate Easter with stories of Jesus, baby bunnies, colorful eggs, and growing seeds. Here are some of our favorite picture books for the month of April:
