From Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek, the award-winning husband-and-wife team behind Birds and In the Middle of Fall, this gorgeous board book edition of When Spring Comesis perfect for the very youngest readers.
Watch the world transform when spring comes! In a starred review, School Library Journal calls this delightful picture book “A must-have, joyful seasonal title for the youngest listeners.”
Before spring comes, the trees are dark sticks, the grass is brown, the ground is covered in snow.
But if you wait, leaves unfurl and flowers blossom, the grass turns green, and the mounds of snow shrink and shrink.
Spring brings baby birds, sprouting seeds, rain and mud, and puddles. You can feel it and smell it and hear it—and you can read it!
In this beautiful board book edition for the youngest readers, Kevin Henkes uses striking imagery, repetition, and alliteration to introduce basic concepts of language and the changing of the seasons.
And Laura Dronzek’s gorgeous, lush paintings show the transformation from quiet, cold winter to the newborn spring.
In a starred review, The Horn Book says, “This joyful reflection is as welcome as spotting the first brave crocus.”
