“Please don’t stomp here. There are seeds and they are trying,” reads a sign in the yard. In up-and-coming author Julie Fogliano’s book, And Then It’s Spring, the reader follows along in the process of waiting for spring with a little boy. This beautiful book explains the way in which the world works. Along with the delicate illustrations of previous Caldecott Award winner Erin Stead, Fogliano tells the story of a boy who plants his very own garden and then must wait patiently as the brown of winter turns into the bright green of spring.

“Please don’t stomp here. There are seeds and they are trying.”

I really enjoyed this book and I think it could be used for children of all ages. It takes an interesting topic about how our world works and combines it with the story of a child and beautiful illustrations to make it enjoyable for all. Whether you’re looking for a book to help explain the way the seasons work and gardens grow or a nice book to read at bedtime, you can’t go wrong with And Then It’s Spring.
