For beginning readers. It is a collection of short poems about nature and the human experience. The book is split up into sections depending on the season. The poems are very beautiful, and the pictures are drawn in a collage style- with unique patterns, shapes and colors. A good poetry book for beginning readers and visual learners who like pictures and imagery that bring the poem to life. ( )

Beautiful artwork that compliments short poems by authors such as Ted Kooser. ( )

This collection of poems is colorful and inviting. This book is great for younger kids because the poems are short, and the topic of each poem is different. I think this would be a great resource for teachers to use in the classroom to teach about poetry! ( )

This book is filled with very short poems about spring. These poems are about things like flowers, rain, how things grow, new life, and all things spring. This book also talks about animals and what they do in the spring time.

This book would be a good book to show kids when it is spring time, or when you're studying the different seasons. It gives many different perspectives of what spring looks like and feels like. I think because there are so many short poems, students would be able to think about which ones the connect to the most and which ones made them feel most like spring.
