March comes in with a roar.
He rattles your windows
and scratches at your door.
In this exuberant, rhythmic story, March, personified as a lion, enters a boy's cozy home and leaves a trail of snow flurries and muddy footprints. The boy calmly observes the pouncing, howling, growling lion until in comes the lamb on the crest of a huge sneeze.
Escorted by grass, flowers, sunshine, showers, and animal babies large and small, the lamb brings forth spring.
"A good addition to the spring shelf, [the book] is sure to find its way, roaring and bleating, to classrooms studying similes."—Kirkus Reviews
"Readers will want to find this book each spring. . . . Children will certainly enjoy this as a read-aloud. All readers will connect with the weather topic, and this title would make a great kick-off for a unit related to weather.—Library Media Collection
