My top 5 stories about growing, ready for spring!

3) "Le popo du chiot" par Jeong-Saeng Kwon &n Seung-Gak Jeong chez Le p'tit paquet

Even a dog's poo, though it may feel useless, can enable a beautiful flower to bloom!  A story of hope which will appeal to children from the age of 7; the level of the language is quite high.

4) "Jardiner un jeu d'enfant" par Catherine Nuridsany & Agnès Audras chez Flammarion

This is a very child-friendly book about gardening which you could use to inspire some activities or just to look at with the children; actually they probably will want to look at it themselves too!

As I type, this book is really cheap so grab yourself a bargain here! 

For simple resources about gardening with children, Mômes.net have the answer.

5) "Dix petites graines" de Ruth Brown chez Gallimard Jeunesse

This is the only book in this blog which I do not actually own... but I feel it is probably so well-known it needs no introduction!

You can buy it here at Little Linguist.
