Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ernst (Sam Johnson and the Blue Ribbon Quilt) finds a nifty hook for a familiar subject: Spring is really a chain of wake-up calls. First the sun rouses the earth-"Wake up, old friend, it's Spring!"-which in turn nudges its "guest," the earthworm. Each recipient urges the next to welcome the return of spring after a long winter. Bathed in tender pastels, the full-bleed spreads follow a consistent format. On the left side is the reveille: "The ladybug laughed in the sunshine. It tickled the rabbit's ear as it whispered, "Pssst-rabbit! Spring is here!" The right side carries the response: "And the rabbit woke up." (Like many of the creatures awakened from their sleep, rabbit initially opens only one eye.) As the chain grows longer, it eventually reaches the human realm. A baby in a crib shouts to his startled siblings, "Out! Out! Spring!" and even parents are pulled from their beds. Ernst's large-scale shapes and confident, fluid outlines keep the action focused and the momentum building, and the final spreads depict a joyous, multi-species dance in the sun. Ages 3-8. (Feb.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
It is spring and the snow is melting and the sun is shining and the earthworm is moving in the earth and a seed is also ready to wake up. It is sprouting and the ladybug is spreading its wings because it is spring. The rabbit is wakened by the ladybug who claims it's spring and the rabbit with one eye opened looks a bit askance but after twitching his nose "to smell the Spring air. He thumped to the bird up in her nest." The red cardinal in turn woke the tawny striped cat who nudged the dog who in turn spread the word to the baby in her crib. The little one shared the good news with her brother and sister and before you could blink an eye, they roused their parents and everyone went outside. "And they all ran to dance together in the sun....because it was SPRING!" A delightful celebration of this time of rebirth, by an author/artist who creates illustrations full of joy and fun that will surely appeal to young kids. 2004, HarperCollins, and Ages 3 to 8.
—Marilyn Courtot
Library Journal
PreS-A simple celebration of the coming of spring. The sun warms the earth, the earth wakes the earthworm, the earthworm sings to a seed, and so on, until numerous creatures as well as the members of a family and their pets are all dancing together in the sunshine and rejoicing that winter has ended. The appealing cartoon illustrations show each of the characters reacting to the change in the weather. Beautiful pastel shades infuse the pages with the hues and happiness of springtime. In a few words, the text perfectly conveys the essence of the season. A good choice for storytime sharing.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Nature plays the childhood game of telephone in this tale of spring's arrival. At the end of a cold winter, it's the sun that first passes the message along that spring has arrived. As it warms the earth, the earth awakens and announces it to an earthworm. And so the message passes to a seed, a ladybug, a rabbit, a bird, and into the house where it passes through the cat, dog, baby, siblings, and on to the parents. When all are awake, they go outdoors to celebrate in the spring sunshine. Even though it's the beginning of a new spring day that awakens them, animals that hibernate and those that do not are mixed together in the chain of the message, which could be confusing for children who have a bit of knowledge about animals' winter habits, or for those who want to know more. The pastel-colored illustrations are perfect for young readers who always want to see things up close. With just enough detail to define the scene, but not enough to overwhelm, they highlight the animals and objects that are familiar to children. (Picture book. 2-5)
