Exuberant little tykes celebrate springtime in this entry into Cocca-Leffler’s series about seasons. In succinct phrases that rhyme and bouncy illustrations that match the text, three young kids and their spotted dog enjoy the spring: “Singing birds, / budding trees, / frogs and tulips, / honeybees.” They begin by helping to plant a garden: “Digging, tilling, / seeds to sow. / Planting carrots in a row.” Then they picnic, play soccer, swing, visit a farm, build a tree house, and head to the swimming pool on the last day of school. Each of the spreads depicts an association with the spring season, and they are filled with fun details for the youngest readers. For instance, the dog getting his head lodged in a planter, a teddy bear left out in the pouring rain, a trail of ants invading their tree house picnic, and so forth. Good for home sharing as well as at nursery schools. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Julie Cummins

There are other such seasonal book series on the market, but this is my favorite. I feel it captures each season the best - from start to finish, and has the best illustrations. The rhyming makes this book fun to read and approachable for all age groups.
I first bought the Let It Fall book when my daughter was 1. I then added the other seasons. She's three and a half now and still enjoys reading them.
I have to disagree with the reviewers who say this book or any of the series lacks substance. What I like so much about the books is the ability to draw conversation from what you see on the pages. There are so many great comprehension questions to ask, even to a 1 year old. The pictures are so rich, with so much going on, each time we read them there is something new to point out. That is what makes these books so great to read again and again. I never tire of them.
This book is the quintessential book for spring. I love that none of the books mention holidays specifically. That makes them relatable to so many different religious or cultural groups here in America. Moreover the four books make a great gift pack for multiple age groups.
Maryann Cocca-Leffler knows exactly what will appeal to children and how to word her books so that, even reading them over and over nightly, they never get old.
Maryann's books are the only books I don't tire of!
We are looking forward to Let It Shine (which we've pre-ordered)!!!
