Booklist Review

Ages 3-6. Three playmates and a dog explore all the delights of spring. The raindrops and puddles, baby birds and crocuses, sunshine and wind. They have a perfectly lovely time dashing down a hill, popping up their umbrellas in the rain, mucking in the dirt for earthworms, and getting tangled in kite string. Carr's bouncing rhymes are full of choice adjectives--sloppy and bloomy, swooping and snapping--and there's plenty of visual appeal along with auditory fun. Donohue uses a lush, color-saturated palette for her paper-cut artwork, which is so tactile children will wonder how it's done and want to run their hands across the pages. The blades of grass look pointed, the brick sidewalk is full of bumps, and the kite strings seem real enough to grasp. The appealing pictures are a fine fit for the story premise--children's innocent fascination with the whole world. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Three children and a dog brave the wet weather and go outside to enjoy spring. The catchy, rhyming text describes all of their activities, as they dodge raindrops and splash in puddles. The sun comes out, and they take off their raincoats and fold their umbrellas. They discover baby robins begging for food and help the mother dig up worms. They admire crocuses and daffodils, look at spiders and bees, and do cartwheels down a hill. When a thunderstorm threatens, they run for home, picking flowers along the way. On the last page, one of the children presents the bouquet to a mother waiting at the front door. The colorful cut-paper collages are filled with a variety of interesting textures. The artwork shows the youngsters in constant motion and cleverly depicts their varied facial expressions. Engaging details not mentioned in the text, such as frogs eating bugs, the dog spotting a squirrel in a tree, and a broken string on a kite, will hold young listeners' attention. The bouncy language, bright artwork, and nonstop action make this book a good choice for group sharing.-Anne Parker, Milton Public Library, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
