Discovering Waldorf...Spring!!

Hey there beautiful today I'm a guest blogger over at the Magic Onions, (as a part of the Discovering Waldorf series)!  The post is all about Spring, with some ideas to help you celebrate the season! 

I'd love to know, as I notice I am seriously lacking in the Spring book department...what are some of your favourite "Spring" books for the kids?
