I LOVED the illustrations in this book. Plus, because green is my child's favorite color, he loves the transformation to green that this book demonstrates.

A beautifully illustrated, poetic book about the long wait for Spring.

Not as delightful as "If You Want to See a Whale", but I did enjoy the illustrations.

A delightful book that encourages us about Spring. Illustrations are wonderful and captures our delight when Spring finally arrives.

A current favourite of SCL Youth Services staff. Using wonderful language and beautiful illustrations, this book captures precisely how springtime arrives in places that endure long winters!

An understated little beauty with enough tiny details to ensnare squirmy children worldwide, author Fogliano and illustrator Stead have pooled their considerable talents to bring us a great example of what happens when you stop to grow the flowers.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Jan 31, 2012

A boy, his dog, his turtle, a rabbit, and various assorted birds go out on a day that wavers between blue and gray skies. Says the book, “First you have brown, all around you have brown.” Armed with a wagon of seeds the boy sets about planting each one systematically, burying them under little mounds of dirt. The sun and the rain come but there is no green to be seen. A week passes and the boy worries about the seeds and whether or not they’ve been eaten by birds or crushed by bears. Another week passes and another until one day the brown is all gone, “and now you have green, all around you have green.” And there, pushing through the earth, the seedlings make their debut.
