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.

this is but one of Douglas Florian's many delightful works for young eyes and minds; i recommend without reserve.
You'll find a fun combination of rhyme for young children to pantomime plus puns and sophisticated wordplay for older students. From the title poem: "Spring is great/ for growing grass./ Spring has zing/ and spring has sass..." and so does this book.
This is a neat collection of poems all about spring! A lot of springtime fun is included in the poems. From playing in the rain to warm weather activities it's all here in this one book! Celebrate spring with poetry!
