The illustrations in this book were wonderfully done b Erin Stead. Woodblock printing techniques and pencil were used to create a very unique illustration style. This book also has a lesson to teach younger children that rain is not the only ingredient to growing plants. With spring comes more sunlight, and the sunlight is what the seeds need too.

In this book a young boy sits in a world of brown. He plants seeds and waits for the green. He waits across the months as it snows and spring comes. But everything is still brown. Until one day, he walks outside and spring has come. There are green trees, sprouts, and plants everywhere!

Yay for quiet books.  Slow down and smell the mud, listen for the green, imagine the birds and bears eating the seeds. ( )
