Looking for picture books for May? With this month’s list, we’re continuing our celebration of spring with a focus on seeds, plants, gardening, baby animals and things that grow.

My very favorites on this list are Miss Rumphius, Hedgie’s Surprise, The Little Green Girl, and Make Way for Ducklings. But truly, they’re all delightful.
