And Then It’s Spring by Julie Fogliano

And Then It's SpringIn the months of February and March when winter seems to be dragging on and on, it is time for my own personal countdown to Spring. For me, it starts when I can’t bear the thought of wearing my winter coat one more day, and I love my winter coat! Luckily this year Spring came early, but in this story the wait is a little longer. The book starts out with the world all brown, “all around you have brown”, and then day by day inch by inch the world starts to wake up. The little boy plants a seed, and he wishes for rain, and then gets his wish, and then there’s more waiting and wondering. Finally, one day there is a little rain and the next day a little sunshine, and the boy walks outside to check on all the brown, and everything is GREEN! This wonderful book is a hopeful and still realistic view of what it feels like to be young and to wait for Spring!
