Twenty–nine poems about spring are illustrated with Douglas Florian's distinctive and buoyant watercolours and extol the many virtues of the season–from those muddy puddles and emerging bulbs to rain showers and rainbows and that first day without mittens. Concrete poems, humour, ingenious wordplay, and audience appeal make this a consummate companion to the acclaimed poet's first three seasonal collections.

Douglas Florian's books for children include A Pig Is Big, as well as the poetry collections Beast Feast; Lizards, Frogs, and Polliwogs; In the Swim; and Mammalabilia. Mr. Florian lives with his family in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-Florian continues to churn out clever poems accompanied by his spirited watercolor and colored-pencil artwork. Illustrations include a girl skateboarding on a green leaf, a boy doing handsprings, and a daisy with a smiling face poking around a brick wall. He employs lots of playful phrases: Spring is great/For growing grass./Spring has zing/And spring has sass and The March wind rattles/And skedaddles. There is one nimble concrete poem titled Rain Reign and another selection called Ten Things To Do When It Rains: -¦Surf the net./Build a jet./Or go outside and get wet. The format will be familiar to fans of Summersaults (2002), Autumnblings (2003), and Winter Eyes (1999, all HarperCollins), with plenty of white space framing muddy, childlike illustrations and simple, clear print. These sprightly odes shout out the poet's affection for the season and conclude his well-received quartet. Most libraries will want to purchase this entertaining suite.-Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma Library, CA
