Picture Book Puzzler: Spring Blooms

March 28th, 2011 by Eliza Eliza

Spring has sprung! Little crocuses and snowdrops are already flowering here in Massachusetts, with daffodils and tulips not far behind. It makes you get excited for full spring and summer blooms, doesn’t it? So let’s celebrate our early spring flowers with some flowers from our favorite picture books. Can you name each illustrator (or book title) of each of these flowers? Put your guesses in the comments below and I’ll put the answers in the comments on Friday. Good luck and Happy Spring!
