  After the “cold and dark and sneezy” days of winter with its snow, wind and ice, spring is a time for rejoicing, and in this cheerful, bright, and bouncy collection of poems, the author has perfectly captured the excitement and change that comes when this new season arrives.
  Spring is a time to playing outdoors, for planting a garden, for playing baseball, and for letting a gentle spring rain land on ones face. Of course there are things about spring that are not so pleasant like thunderstorms, spring-cleaning, mud, and bubblebees but on the whole it is a wonderful season which is over far too soon.
  Simple yet engaging rhymes and childlike paintings accompany forty-eight short poems which paint amusing, image-filled mini portraits of spring which readers of all ages can identify with.
