What We are Reading this Wednesday

Ethan reading a bird book

Since my son was 2, we have spent the month of April studying birds.  Now that he is 5, we still enjoy when we see and hear the birds come back to our neighborhood in the spring.  

Below you’ll find a list of bird books we have enjoyed reading together.  I thought about separating the list for the 0-2 year old set and the 3-6 year old set but I decided to list them all together.  My daughter has enjoyed listening to and looking at all of these books from a very young age even though I may have purchased some of them with my older son in mind.  And both children still enjoy looking at the bird board books we own that are intended for younger children.

I’ve also included this booklist in the Booklist section of the blog if anyone would like to print it to bring to the library or bookstore.  I hope you find this feature helpful.
