Kindergarten Picture Books for Spring 2023

Please note: this post may contain affiliate links. For more information please see my affiliate statement page

The following is a list of all of the books featured in my youtube haul, in case you would like more information about each of the titles. As I wrote in the video caption, many of these are included in the Memoria Press Kindergarten Social Studies or Science plans. Some are related or on other concepts I want to cover.

I went ahead an included all of the books I had ordered, since they arrived sometimes 1 at a time, and it makes my eyes cross trying to only include the ones I filmed!

Here are the books we will use in our spring Kindergarten semester!
