PreS-K. After a long, cold winter, the sun wakes everybody up, starting with the earth: "Wake up, old friend, it's Spring!" When the earth warms up, it wakes the earthworm from its underground slumber, and it, in turn, nudges a neighboring seed. The seed sprouts and calls to the ladybug, who whispers to the rabbit, who thumps to the bird, who wakes up the cat, who nudges the dog, who barks to the toddler, who shouts to his family, "Out! Out! Spring!" Children who live in seasonless regions may not understand what all the fuss is about, but those who hibernate in colder climes will appreciate the seemingly overnight awakening that happens every spring. At the end of the book, the entire menagerie (even the earthworm) dance together in the sun. Ernst's winning paintings, created with soft lines and misty morning hues, soak up the pages. The creatures, human and otherwise, which are featured prominently in the pictures, are just the right size for young eyes. Karin Snelson
