What a great way to combine reading, exercise, and family fun! “It’s Spring!” celebrates the coming of spring and all that happens in our natural world during this important season. A child observes the arrival of spring and its effects on plants and animals.
As animals emerge from hibernation and the snow starts to melt, hints of green begin to bud and sprout which can only mean Springtime has arrived. From acorn to tree, sprout to fern, and spore to mushroom; the woodland forest is a revolving world of new plant species as far as the eye can see.
