Erin E. Stead’s beautiful illustrations and Julie Fogliano’s simple text are a perfect combination in And Then It’s Spring. A young boy painstakingly plants seeds for a garden while the ground is still brown. He waits and worries that birds will eat the seeds, or that bears will come and stomp the ground, as they can’t read the sign that asks people to not stomp as seeds are trying to grow. But soon the ground becomes a hopeful brown. And soon after that, the ground starts to hum with a green sound. Perhaps spring is just around the corner. Stead’s georgeous illustrations are a story in themselves. Adults and children will love examining the pictures to see what the different animals are doing and what plants the young boy has planted. The straightforward text is simple enough that beginning readers may want to read this to their grown ups. And everyone will delight when spring finally arrives! See this book listed in our catalog
