Slither Slide, What's Outside? by Nora Hilb & Sheryl and Simon Shapiro

There are so many things in the world that can inspire creativity. Spring brings with it all kinds of fun things, like trees in blossom and wiggling worms. The sky has lots of beauty and mystery, like stars and rainbows and a soft summer drizzle. As the seasons change and the world reveals more awesome sights, it becomes clear that there is so much in nature that can inspire and spark creativity in children.

I love the combination of drawings and photographs that this book uses. This approach will appeal to a number of kids who like different styles of art and representation. There's also a really nice message running through the book about the beauty of nature and its power to inspire. Reading this book and acting out some of the passages is a great way to foster literacy skills with children.
