Young Reader Reaction: S/He immediately wanted us to read it again. We've gone several days now where we've been asked to read the book … even when it's not nap or bedtime.

Adult Reader Reaction: The sentences are simple and keep the story moving, and it doesn't take long to engage your child in helping everyone "wake up" for spring.

Pros: The illustrations are bright, simple and not overwhelming. The text moves forward smartly, and preschoolers will recognize all of the object in the book.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow. It's always dicey buying seasonal tales, and this one will wear out quickly. You can always borrow it again for your emerging reader.
