Elusive Spring

So far, it hasn't felt much like Spring in this area, but the weather looks promising as April approaches! As you get out and about enjoying your extended Spring Break, help your child notice the signs of new life that you may find in your own neighborhood. In My Backyard will introduce some powerful vocabulary as well as great factual information about creatures that exist with us, but are often not noticed.
Remember that each Sylvan Dell book has a quick online quiz and extensions that families can do together.
Happy Reading , Happy Spring!
