Celebrate Spring with Dawn Publications' New Books That Embrace the Natural World!

Spring has sprung! And along with the warmer weather and beautiful flowers, we get to enjoy new nature-themed children’s books from Dawn Publications! If you’re not yet familiar with this company, they publish beautifully written and illustrated children’s books that all have a nature theme. This spring, they’re issuing three new books to delight families:

Wonderful Nature, Wonderful You
Author: Karin Ireland
Illustrator: Christopher Canyon

Nature can be a great teacher! With a light touch especially suited for children, Karin Ireland explores the lessons of nature and finds their relevance to all of us. She gracefully weaves together inspiration and fascinating fact. Nature becomes a metaphor for positive social and emotional development, dynamically brought to life by illustrator Christopher Canyon.

Baby on Board: How Animals Carry Their Young
Author: Marianne Berkes
Illustrator: Cathy Morrison

How do animals carry their babies? Not in backpacks or strollers, but tucked in pouches ... Gripped in teeth ... Propped on backs ... Even underneath! Marianne Berkes’ rhyming verses present some of the many ways that animals carry their young. Cathy Morrison’s magical illustrations capture the intimate moments of mother and baby.

There's a Bug on My Book!
Author/Illustrator: John Himmelman

Beetles fly, frogs hop, and slugs slide over the pages of this book, made to be read by a child while lying on the grass. Children interact with the book, with a tip, tap, and turn of the book, moving the critters along. The critters even interact with each other in surprising ways. John Himmelman brings together his expertise as both a naturalist and an artist to encourage children to explore nature in their own backyard.

All three of these books are wonderful additions to Dawn’s growing catalog of nature-themed children’s books that educate and delight. I hope you’ll head over to and pick up some copies for the special kids in your life.
