About This Book

Spring is here, and along with it a flurry of activity for nature-minded kids to observe! An energetic frog takes us on a tour of the small, small pond, mischievously interrupting the other animals at work and play. As the seasons pass, slowly and gradually, dragonflies hover, herons plunge, whirligigs twirl, swallows scoop, and turtles doze in the summer sun. Soon the leaves are changing; ducks paddle by, muskrats start packing and stacking, and the snow comes. A last goose readies itself for departure as our frog friend digs into a cozy spot in the mud to wait for next spring.

Denise Fleming's inviting introduction to nature and the seasons was named a Caldecott Honor Book for its glorious illustrations, which she created as handmade paper by pouring colored cotton pulp through hand-cut stencils. Bold animal forms come to life against the vibrant colors of every season, with the constant presence of the bright green frog adding humor and interest for very young children. Prepare for a field trip — or even just a nature lesson — with this eye-catching picture book.
