I read this book to my friend’s 6 year old. He really liked it apart from a few questions regarding crocus flowers. “What’s a crocus?” That was resolved with google images. The illustrations are colorful and quite pleasing. Some of the words were a bit difficult for children, for example “harbingers of spring” but it’s always good to increase a child’s vocabulary. Overall, great book. Pleasant bedtime stories for young kids. This book was given to me at a promotional rate for my honest and unbiased review.
