Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—A small, inquisitive cub is anxiously awaiting his first spring. After his mother falls asleep for the winter, Maurice goes out to look for spring, asking other woodland animals for help along the way. Mistaking snowflakes for spring, a satisfied little bear scoops some up into a snowball and then returns to hibernate. When he wakes up, the snowball has melted, but Maurice finally learns what spring really is. Berger writes with simple, rhythmic clarity as well as with an unaffected innocence, making for a charming read-aloud. Young children will relate to Maurice's eagerness, as they share a similar enthusiasm to learn about the world around them. Berger's collages, which include several striking spreads, are a creative blend of paper cut-outs. With Berger's gentle storytelling and warm, joyful art, this is a winning entry into spring-themed picture books. Pair it with Julia Rawlinson's Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms (Greenwillow, 2009) for a charming story hour about springtime mix-ups.—Laura J. Giunta, Garden City Public Library, NY
