June is Great Outdoors Month, the perfect time to get outside with your little one, enjoying the beautiful late spring/early summer weather. It can be as simple as a walk around the neighborhood. Why not take a walk to your local library?  Be sure to engage in conversation with your child about what you see, smell, hear, and feel as you walk.   

While you’re at the library, be sure to try these great nature-themed books, or ask your librarian for recommendations!
