31 Festive Children’s Books to Read and Enjoy in May

May is here and so is another book list for your reading pleasure! This month’s list covers a lot of holidays- May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day…as well as themes like flowers, clouds, berries and butterflies!

Books are such a fun way to learn and celebrate! Grab a stack and head outside on a Spring day or check them off one day at a time. Pair your Memorial Day read with a festive snack board or enjoy some berry books and a yummy berry treat!

**Just a quick note- one of the Memorial Day books- Twenty-one Steps is amazing, but it is a heavy topic, so I do recommend pre-reading it to make sure it is right for your listeners!

Grab a printable list below to make filling your library holds a breeze!

What is your favorite children’s book to read in May?

Happy Reading!
