Spring has arrived and Easter is here! The Children’s Department has loads of materials just waiting for you to hop into!
I love spring-the air smells so fresh, rain showers, green grass, and beautiful birds with their sweet songs. Spring can mean family time, spring-cleaning, and enjoying outdoor time after a long cold winter! It is definitely warming up, and time to put those winter coats away! Easter egg hunts are so much fun and a perfect way to celebrate outside.
Easter is a holiday celebrated during springtime. According to Britannica.com, "the English word Easter, which parallels the German word Ostern, is of uncertain origin. One view...was that it was derived from Eostre, or Eostrae, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility" (2022). A number of popular folk customs are associated with Easter. These have to do with bunnies, lambs, chicks, and eggs, which are ancient symbols of new life. Not all cultures have the same traditions. The most common traditions may include the Easter Bunny leaving colored eggs, toys, and candy for children on Easter morning.
Sitting outside with a good book on a fresh spring day sounds just perfect! Come to the library and check out some Easter books or any material that makes you bounce like a bunny!
