What do the animals do when the snow falls to the ground and all the trees are bare? Some fly long distances, while some swim to warmer waters. Some take a long, warm sleep where they live, while others have a thick, cozy coat and can stay in the snow!
As with Il Sung Na's previous books, Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit is filled with rich illustrations, charming animals, and a simple, lyrical text—all wrapped up in a gorgeous package. It's a gentle introduction to the ideas of adaptation, hibernation, and migration, and an exhuberant celebration of changing seasons.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book shows how different animals adapt to winter coming. Some animals travel South, some have coats that keep them warm, and some hibernate. Contrary to what the title suggests this book only focuses on what animals do in the winter. It has very simple language so I think it's too easy for second grade. But the illustrations are different and quite interesting.
This simply story packs alot of information. This would work so wonderfully as part of a science unit on seasons or animal behaviors. The art work is breathtaking. This will be a favorite as part of my read aloud collection.
