Addressed to ""you,"" the text suggests some of the feelings evoked by the appearance of spring, but is less impressionistic than the title might suggest. Following the change of season from the wintertime, an easy transition is made into the actual physical developments -- the position of the sun, the climate, the plants, and the types of animal life. It's a good, very elementary introduction to the seasonal variations and one to encourage observation. The illustrations, which are black and white for the winter, display a nice textural blend. The later use of big blocks of colors, like bright orange, and shocking pink, destroy the mood, however.
