"Spring days are warmer and wetter than winter days" and "Everything is green again" are two of the six facts about the spring season presented here. Other topics cover what animals do in Spring ("Robins feed their young in nests."), and what happens to plants during this season ("Bees buzz in and out of the flowers."). "What's next?" describes what happens at the end of the season. Part of the "Investigate the seasons" series for young readers, sentences are intentionally short. Full-color clear, crisp photographs accompany the text. Teachers and parents can read along with the child and add further information as seen in the photos. Close-ups include a bee on a flower and a robin feeding here baby. Sections at the end of the book include a glossary, read more, Internet sites, and an index. A note to parents and teachers states that this series "supports national science standards related to weather and climate." This is a good general introduction to the season. From here, students can add facts they know or list seasonal topics they want to learn more about. The brief text and the interesting pictures make this suitable for toddlers as well as beginning readers.
