About the Book

Young readers will love this lyrical yet simple introduction to the wondrous surprises brought by spring.

When winter ends, spring begins! The days get longer and the air gets warmer. Trees and flowers bloom and animals have their babies. Spring is the perfect time to have fun! Featuring detailed photographs exploding with color, HELLO SPRING familiarizes children with the changes in plant and animal life that occur during a temperate spring. A glossary is included.
