Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap


Laughing, playing, dancing,
see the children gay—
Hear them singing, "Spring is here, Spring is here today."

Could there be a more cheerful time of year than spring? Winter is over, birds are singing, flowers are in bloom . . . and it's time to play outside! Lois Lenski's rhyming, pocket-size picture book—published in 1945, and out of print for decades—is back in full, glorious color.

"What a pleasure to rediscover a classic children's author! And what a pleasure to help today's children discover one for the first time! Many thanks are due to Random House for re-releasing [her books] with their original covers and illustrations. It is one of the charms of Lois Lenski that she educated children so gently."—Infodad.com, Four Stars

"The charm and usefulness of these books hasn't diminished at all since they were first published in the 40's."—Jacksonville Florida Times-Union

From the Hardcover edition. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This book will delight even the youngest "reader" with its simple language, and the bright, cheerful illustrations (also by the author).

I'm so glad that her books are finally coming back into print!

This is a great little book for my 3 year old granddaughter. Lenski has written a spring, summer, fall and winter book. Can't go wrong with Lois Lenski.

LOVE this book, LOVE the author. Another precious, timeless children's classic. This book is small in size - but wonderful nonetheless. Was pleased to add it to our collection.

The book is really adorable. It's a nice small size that's perfect for little hands. The pictures are interesting and have lots of movement and inherent story, while the rhythm of the the text is brisk and fun. My daughter likes this book a lot - we hope the other Lenski books come back into print!
