Little Kid Reaction

S/He immediately wanted us to read it again. We've gone several days now where we've been asked to read the book … even when it's not nap or bedtime.

Parent Reaction

The sentences are simple and keep the story moving, and it doesn't take long to engage your child in helping everyone "wake up" for spring.

Type of Book:
This is a picture book that sequences how spring unfolds.
Educational Themes:

The book is a little too simplistic for explaining seasonal change, but there is still enough there to show what happens in spring.
