What really stands out in this one is the illustrations. Very intricate and charming. A nice story about patience too. ( )

This book is about a boy who decides after winter to create a garden and plant seeds. Throughout the book you are patiently waiting for the seeds to grow into green. This book is great for classrooms because it teaches students the importance of patience and giving your hard work time to bloom into what you have been waiting to accomplish. ( )

And then It's Spring, is a cute book to show how patient and how anticipating it is to wait for spring. The images are great and can be used to have the class inference the season the little boy is in. The books was awarded with "Washington Post's Best Kids Books of 2012" and
Kirkus Reviews' Best Children's Books of 2012. ( )

This is a fun picture book for elementary kids that shows the transition from winter to spring time. This book shows how in the winter it is cold with little vegetation on the ground, and how in spring animals come out from hibernation and there is many more green plants and flowers growing. This would be a good book to read to children when explaining weather and seasons and how plants and animals change as the seasons do. ( )
