Cover: It's Spring!

“From the Celebrate the Seasons series, which includes It’s Fall (2001), this brightly illustrated picture book offers sensory impressions and childlike experiences representative of spring. Writing in first person from a boy’s point of view, Glaser proves an astute observer of what spring looks and feels like to a child: pussy willows soft against the cheek, birds that ‘cheep and warble and trill,’ and the sunsets after dinner. Swan’s eye-catching artwork underlines the three-dimensional quality of collage. Rather than trying to mask the joint marks where one piece of painted-and-cut paper meets another, the illustrator uses light and shadow to highlight the overlapping papers and create a greater sense of depth. A list of nature activities adds to the usefulness of this pleasant book.” —Booklist
