Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this appealing early reader, spring arrives via rhymed couplets and set within a pleasant valley. Featuring stanzas like “Welcome, sunshine, / warm our cheeks. / Melt the snow / and fill the creeks,” the text is spare but covers a lot of ground in not too many pages, as four children play outside—by a river, in a meadow, and at a farm. In keeping with the Step Into Reading series, this “Step 2” story includes basic vocabulary, short sentences, and a few fun new words, like hollyhock and pollywogs, that students will be able to sound out. Swearingen’s illustrations feature happy, active children and animals—even the dolls made from hollyhocks look bright-eyed in this accessible ode to spring. The book ends as night falls, with the world seemingly exhausted by the day of adventure and play: “Bullfrogs croak, / owls WHO-WHO. / That is all / this day can do.” Preschool-Grade 1. --Abby Nolan

He liked the pictures and rhyming words. It is a good book to read when teaching seasons to preschoolers. It is a short quick book to read, so I would say for kids under 6.

I have a 4 yr old daughter and she likes the variety of the different animals. It also is helping her to understand about rhyming words.

Thanks for a great read :)
