Spring is the perfect time of year to get outside and play. While I highly recommend making Salad Pie with all of those twigs and blossom petals blowing around, I also recommend reading several books about the outdoors. I wrote this post about going outside no matter what the weather, season, or time of day on Nerdy Book Club a few months ago, and it features some of my favourite picture books. Have a look!
