Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This joyful celebration of spring exudes exuberance with its appealing colorful illustrations of a young boy enjoying the many delights of the warming season. We see him exploring a variety of nature settings (my favorite: "I lie on my tummy. I talk to the ants."). Many of the pictures compare the boy with a creature, such as in the scene of him leaping across a flower-strewn field, where we see a grasshopper which is also stretching its legs as it leaps across the field with the boy. The illustrations abound with dragonflies, bees, clover blossoms, mice, ducklings, bunnies, and other sure signs of spring. The pictures are watercolor cartoons with a realistic bent: the fauna and flora are depicted naturally and realistically. We see the boy interacting with a variety of friends and enjoying activities involving lots of splashing in puddles and streams. The lively scenes are matched with wonderful language that includes such word as "jumpity jump," "thumpity thump,"and "scampering and skittering." This is a pleasure to read aloud and discuss with a young child. It should also serve as an incentive to get out and explore nature with a child. 2005, NorthWord, Ages 2 to 4.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This book presents a sensory trip through a spring day. From "flying" on his swing, singing a cloud song, wading in puddles, smelling sweet fragrances, planting seeds, and swimming in a pond, a boy actively embraces the season. Bright watercolor-and-pencil illustrations shine with blues, greens, oranges, and yellows as the energetic child enjoys every aspect of the warm weather. "I pick yummy berries. I lick lemon ice. Springtime is wildly, deliciously nice!" Talking to ants, watching a rabbit, spying red-winged blackbirds, and giggling with a goose are some of his many delights. Large print, short sentences, and rhyming text make this title accessible to new readers while the big pictures assure its success in a group setting. Share this along with Lisa Campbell Ernst's Wake Up, It's Spring (HarperCollins, 2004) for an invigorating seasonal storytime.-Maryann H.
