Albert Whitman, 2007, 978-0-8075-7596-3
  Spring often begins with snow melting and “dripping,” as the cold of winter recedes. Trees bud and seeds sprout and children once again play baseball outside in the sun. It is also a time when new life appears, when baby birds hatch out of eggs and when caterpillars crawl across leaves. For gardeners it is a busy time for this is when one has to do the “hoeing,” “sowing, and “mowing.”
  With just a few words on every page, Bob Raczka perfectly captures the essence of spring and he celebrates the special activities that one might enjoy during this season. Bright illustrations in warm and vibrant colors perfectly compliment the simple yet engaging text.
