PreS-Gr 2—A joyous and simple ode to spring and all its glory. Winter is over, and flora and fauna are waking up with the arrival of spring. ("Birds return with song, busy building nests and laying eggs. Daffodils dance. Dandelions dot. Forsythia shouts!") Large color photographs of nature and a diverse array of children enjoying the spring season accompany the spare, poetic text. Young readers will appreciate seeing children their own age interacting with nature and will glean spring-related facts and vocabulary along the way. A glossary with highly accessible definitions is included.
VERDICT A vibrant, welcome addition to school and public library collections, this title introduces all that the spring season has to offer for preschoolers.
