Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
When discussing the spring season in the classroom, the subjects of rain and gardening are always the first to be covered. Diving slightly deeper into the season, students learn about bird eggs, the many animals that reproduce in the spring, and festivals and holidays that take place during the season. Real photos and simple illustrations depict the variety of subjects covered, not hindering or contributing much to the overall lesson, though providing both real and imaginary visuals for different types of learners. One in the "Toppers" series of educational seasons books, this title pairs topics with activities that support each concept. These activities could be implemented individually or with a group. An index in the back of the book provides a quick reference for readers in this very basic introduction to the seasons for beginners. For best results in incorporating this books in a classroom's curriculum, use the series as a starting point and then expand, explore, and experiment. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
