The Book

This wonderful book is an ode to Spring, the long awaited season that follows a dormant and freezing Winter.  Spring brings hope and freshness as the plants begin to sprout, the sun warms the earth once again, and every person is eager to get outside and partake of the welcomed changes that are occurring.  Most people, both young and old, are weary of the ice, snow and having to bundle up when they go outside.  Spring is the season that unleashes that pent-up energy from being tucked away inside and demands freedom for the captives once again.  

"Sing in the Spring!" is a rhyming celebration of this magical season which transforms the icy white of Winter into vibrant greens and fragrant coloured blossoms.  

"Buds of leaves
still curled in knots
just like teeny polka dots
spots of green on bare-branched trees
soon buds will bloom and leaves
yes, shimmery light
on every thing."

The unique and delightful artwork of Deb Plestid is created from quiltwork labours of love and are stunning to behold.  Both the illustrations and the poems will bring  happiness to hearts as they interact with all the magic and transformations that Spring has to offer.  I highly recommend this book. 

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
