In the picture book Abracadabra, It’s Spring!, author Anne Sibley O’Brien and illustrator Susan Gal “use delightful rhymes and brilliant illustrations to take readers on a magical journey of seasonal changes” (School Library Journal).

Sun shines on a patch of snow.
Hocus pocus!
Where did it go?

Winter turns to spring in this lyrical book that celebrates the magic of nature and the changing seasons. Eleven gatefolds open to re-create the excitement and surprise of spring’s arrival, revealing what happens when snow melts, trees bud, flowers bloom, birds arrive, and eggs and cocoons hatch. Finally, it’s warm enough to pack away winter clothes and go out and play!

“Rhymes, magic words, and gatefolds celebrate the transformations of spring . . . Gal combines charcoal and digital collage for a beautifully smudgy look, and details charm: on close inspection, a fly’s transparent wing displays a paisley pattern.” —Kirkus Reviews
