Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The news that spring has sprung bounces from bunny to deer to duck and more in It's Spring! by Samantha Berger and Pamela Chanko, illus. by Melissa Sweet. Cheerful watercolors accompany the rhyming text that spreads the word of the new season. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This charming board book is a reissue of the picture book of 2000. The little bunny jumping for joy with a flower in its paws sets the stage. He is springing in the air because it is springtime. The story is simple. First the robin sings and we know that is a harbinger of spring. The rabbit with flower in hand scampers off to tell the deer and together they tell the duck the good news. Spring means that the sky is sunny. The ducks have their turn and they head out to tell the cow that the leaves have sprouted, and so it goes as each animal brings to the child reader's attention the various signs of spring. The rhyming text and delightful watercolor illustration make this a very attractive board book. It will certainly be one that kids will enjoy having read to them a few times until they too start chiming in with the story. 2003, Scholastic,

    Perfect book for Spring

    My 2 year old son loves to make the animal sounds when we read this book. "The cow let out a long MOOOO to tell the horse the flowers grew" This book is wonderful with whimsical art, fun animals and sweet rhymes.

    Very Fun

    I bought this book for my daughter as an infant. She is almost 4 now and I have been upgrading her library but this book will stay for a few more years. It's so fun to read and, as the other reviewer commented, will be a great first book for her to read when she is ready. I love it so much, I'm back to buy it for my friends' babies.

    My son and I love this book because of its catchy rythmn and cute illustrations. The content is everything about spring - from the birds beginning to chirp, the bears coming out of hybernation and the leaves coming back. A perfect book of spring!
