English Children's Books Recommendations for March 2023

The Reading Corner

Welcome one and all to The Reading Conner! This is our third month of English book recommendations. Each month The Reading Corner will introduce 3 english books for kids age 0 to 10 years of age. March is a fun month for all things green! Many people celebrate St. Patrick's Day! They wear green, eat green foods, and find luck with leprechauns and their pots of gold.

First we have the book called Planting a Rainbow. A bright and colorful book for younger aged children.

  • The story follows a mom and her daughter planting and nurturing their garden. The beautiful illustrations will inspire readers to take a closer look at the natural world and maybe even start a garden of their own.

Activity Paring:

STEAM Challenge: Can you build a flower using pattern blocks? Use different colored shapes to create their very own rainbow garden plants. Us the book as a guid to help the your child try to re-create the flowers as seen in the book.

Next we have the book called How to Catch a Leprechaun. This book will help inspire children to explore critical thinking when trying to make their own traps to catch a leprechaun.

  • You've been planning night and day, and finally you've created the perfect trap with shamrocks, pots of gold, and rainbows galore! Now all you need to do is wait. Is this the year you'll finally catch the leprechaun?

Activity Paring:

Use things around the house to try to build a trap for catching your very own leprechaun.

Our last book this month is called The Curious Garden. Will inspire children to think more about our environment and the world around them.

  • While out exploring one day, a little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world.

Activity Paring:

Before and After: Take a piece of white paper and right a list of things your child noticed before and after the garden started to grow. This is a great activity to practice description words. You can also have your child draw a picture of the before and after if it will help them better describe what they are seeing.

What book would pare well with your at home library?
