Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reSchool-Grade 1--A companion to the author's It's Fall (Millbrook, 2001). The excitement of spring is in the air as a boy explores the world around him. Cut-paper illustrations enhanced by hand painting give a three-dimensional look to the scenes. A double-page spread of a torrential river made up of marbled paper and paint splatters is especially evocative of the season. However, reading aloud is made somewhat awkward by text that sometimes rhymes and sometimes doesn't. For example: "One day we spot a robin./Then soon we see red-winged blackbirds and/a bright goldfinch. Early in the morning we/hear the birds sing. They cheep and warble/and trill-it's spring!" Still, children will enjoy this spring scavenger hunt as they browse the richly detailed illustrations. The book closes with a list of nature activities.

From Booklist

Ages 4-6. From the Celebrate the Seasons series, which includes It's Fall (2001), this brightly illustrated picture book offers sensory impressions and childlike experiences representative of spring. Writing in first person from a boy's point of view, Glaser proves an astute observer of what spring looks and feels like to a child: pussy willows soft against the cheek, birds that "cheep and warble and trill," and the sunsets after dinner. Swan's eye-catching artwork underlines the three-dimensional quality of collage. Rather than trying to mask the joint marks where one piece of painted-and-cut paper meets another, the illustrator uses light and shadow to highlight the overlapping papers and create a greater sense of depth. A list of nature activities adds to the usefulness of this pleasant book. Carolyn Phelan

I love books about the seasons, and this is one of the best I have read to my children. The wording is perfect - full of everything fun for kids about the season, and the illustrations are beautiful. Also, at the end of the book is a list of activities to do in the springtime with kids. We have the fall book, too, and are anxiously awaiting the winter and summer books to be released.

Our family enjoyed this book so much! My young children enjoyed the beautiful pages throughout the book, and the creative, poetic words helped reinforce the creative writing theme we were studying in our homeschooling. I recommend this book!

Wonderful illustrations. Very description wording. I would prefer if the rhymes were consistent throughout the book, and I think the book covers such a wide range of information about the spring that some of it gets lost of preschoolers.

I pick this book because it was so careful and I'm glad I did. It explain Spring to preschoolers in a way they could understand. They asked a lot of questions and the book gave them answers!
