Picture Book Puzzler: March Comes in Like a Lion…

March 5th, 2012 by Eliza Eliza

Happy March! After a pretty mild winter here in New England, March came in with a delightful snowstorm. Mother Nature’s way of reminding us that winter isn’t over until she says it’s over! There’s a common saying that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, so for this week’s puzzler, we have images of lions and lambs. Can you name each picture book correctly? Put your guesses in the comments below and I’ll be back at the end of the week with the answers.
