Books with Pastels covers that are perfect for Spring

Happy Spring for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere! Spring is the perfect season for those of us who crave picnics in the park and the sound of chirping friends. If you are like me, the thing you look forward to the most during spring is the pastels! Pastel eggs, pastel wardrobe, pastel home decor!
