Nature is busy budding and flowering; baby animals are being born; gardeners are planting; and everywhere children are running and playing. In rhyming text, the author celebrates Spring.

PreSchool-Grade 3—Enliven your theme lists for seasons, spring, verbs, or just fun with this cheerful picture book. Spring ends with "ing," and Raczka takes children from winter's end to summer's beginning with several befitting "ing" words. From "Melting, dripping, cold's grip slipping" to "buzzing, humming—summer's coming!" readers will remember all of the things they love to do when the weather changes. Using a spring palette, Stead's paintings add an entertaining element and useful clarification to the active text. "Trees leaf-outing" and "lemonading" provide humor and fit the rhyme pattern but might hamper the book's value as a verb-teaching tool. The book includes a four-question rhyming quiz that has the same uplifting spirit as the book.—June Wolfe, Bushnell-Sage Library, Sheffield, MA
