We Shall Have Spring Again!

I love this book! Winter has always been my favorite season, but Jason Farley’s tight, lyrical prose (think George Herbert for littles) and Jessica Evans’ jolly illustrations make spring even lovelier in this fun story about woodland creatures preparing for the cold, dead months. Some dream, some bustle, some are the first to seek out the spring. We need more kids’ books like this—books that show the yearly rhythm of death and resurrection so that kids take delight in recognizing the same pattern throughout their own lives. A rich, rich little book. Going on my Christmas list for the young nephews! They’ll feast on it now and even more as they grow.
