I don’t know about you, but when I think of spring, I think of everything waking up, stretching their wings/branches/legs, and taking a deep, deep inhale. This book mirrors those same feelings in words and in illustrations, and takes in a whole community feel to be inclusive of the whole environment and its inhabitants. I once worked with a group of pre-service teachers and we led them into a “How do you know it is spring” inquiry lesson. Something they could implement with their students. This book would be a great addition to that unit. At first I was thinking, especially for those that live where these country spaces were near, but really for everyone, because that would also create a rich discussion.
