"A photographic picture book providing a comprehensive overview of topics linked to spring."-- - (Baker & Taylor)
Spring is a season of beginnings, from blooming flowers to active animals. People spend more time outdoors, days grow longer, and umbrellas pop open as the weather shifts from snow to rain.
There's so much to see and do in spring—and this book will prepare you for all of it! With vivid photographs, lively explanations, and creative craft ideas, Bruce Goldstone presents all the fascinating facts that make spring so spectacular.

School Library Journal Reviews
PreS-Gr 1—The latest alliterative installment in Goldstone's season series (Awesome Autumn and Wonderful Winter) doesn't disappoint. It presents a neat overview of spring and is chock-full of interesting facts for young readers. Vibrant photographs grace each page, making it all the more appealing for little ones. The explanation of the science behind rain, rainbows, seeds, and more is presented in an accessible way. In addition, readers will learn about animals, spring flowers, how an umbrella works, the sounds and sights of spring, and spring celebrations, culminating in "some spectacular spring activities" (seed jars, mud painting, and more), including instructions—a bonus for makerspaces and caregivers. VERDICT Consider this latest from Goldstone wherever early science books are needed.—Megan Kilgallen, Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn
