  March is a month of change. The weather can be variable and people say that “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” meaning that it can be cold, wet, and blustery at the beginning of the month and mild and pleasant at the end.
  As the spring crocuses begin to bloom many people turn out their homes for a thorough spring cleaning. Outdoors the animals are also busy tending to nests and burrows, excited about the changes that are going on around them.
  Tiny frogs called spring peepers come out and sing their spring song and the first butterflies hatch out of their cocoons. Birds who were south for the winter begin to fly north again. This is also the time when black bears come of their winter dens and now monarch butterflies return to the prairie to lay their eggs on milkweed plants.
  March is also the month when people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day dressing in green, decorating with shamrocks and remembering the life of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It is also the month when there is the spring equinox and the first day of spring.
  This engaging title perfectly captures the mood and the nature of the month of March. Readers will learn all kinds of facts about plants, animals, and historic events which have taken place in this month over the years. The author concludes this volume with a Native American “March Myth.”
