From School Library Journal
reSchool-Beginning with spring, a simple, rhyming text explains each season's weather and activities: "Sing of spring and slosh in mud, Pull apart a flower bud, Meet a robin, hang a screen, Grab the grass and smell the green." Courtin's sweet, bright, full-color illustrations show the experiences of a boy and a girl toddler. Some wording in the rhymes for fall and winter seems forced, but the book may find a use in some collections.

Ages 1-4. Bright, uncluttered pages celebrate the seasons in this spare board book. The rhyming text begins with spring-appropriate activities: "Sing of Spring and slosh in mud, / Pull apart a flower bud, / Meet a robin, hang a screen, / Grab the grass and smell the green." Some of the rhymes in subsequent seasons are forced and the meanings somewhat random: "Hug a pumpkin, climb a stool, / Wave the big kids off to school." But the youngest children will respond to the cheerful, rhythmic sounds in the words more than the sense, and they'll enjoy the smooth, appealing spreads in uncomplicated colors that show the smiling, chubby toddlers delighting in each season's offerings.
