Spring Is Here: A Barnyard Counting Book by Pamela Jane, illus. by Melissa Sweet, chronicles the approach of warmer weather on Maggie's farm. Creatures pop up all over the barnyard, from one winking cat to 10 chirping birds. A pair of leaping crickets "chirp and sing/ They're happy that it's finally spring," while "five puppies play./ They roll and tumble in the hay." Sweet's trademark illustrations with their sketchy, fine lines, scribbles of texture and watercolor washes put the zing into spring. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Inside and outside the farmhouse "spring is here." One winking cat sits on the windowsill and looks out over a springtime scene. Outside, there are two crickets chirping, three snug bunnies, four croaking frogs, etc. up to ten birds outside Maggie's bedroom window. The pop-ups are clever (providing a look at the spider webs in the cellar) and fun (puppies rolling and tumbling in the hay). Part of the "Preschool pop-ups" series, this will appeal to young children who require a brief text. The animals are seen in their natural environment on and around the farm. The moving parts of the pages will require a gentle touch from preschoolers. Inquisitive children may want to go outside in search of crickets, frogs and spiders. 2004, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster, Ages 2 to 5.
