A Favorite Spring Picture Book

Keith Baker's Little Green is at top of my list for favorite seasonal picture books. Rhyming words tell how a ruby-throated hummingbird flies through the air. Meanwhile a little artist has been watching Little Green and painting how he "flew and flew." Grab a blanket and read this with your kids in the open, spring air. Afterwards, pretend you are all Little Greens and draw with sidewalk chalk how you fly. Take turns walking and "flying" each other's paths! 

Also, see how you can make your own "Little Green" Hummingbird collage!

Your Littles will love drawing a line for they would fly as hummingbirds!
