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.

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
