Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
7.0 / 7.0

This book pairs beautiful illustrations with sweet, never-too-wordy text for a great little story about patience, hope, and seasons. It really checks every box for me. It’s funny, it has a perfect words-to-page ratio, it’s great for learning about something (how plants grow, how seasons change), and it has a soft message–nothing too didactic. It’s pretty enough to display, but we can never keep it on the shelf long between readings.

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
4.25 / 7.0

This book shows how winter can linger as we anticipate the new life that spring brings. It touches on colors: brown and green, which adds a nice touch. It also teaches that we need rain and sunshine to bring about the new life of spring.
