When Spring Comes


Written by Kevin Henkes
Illustrated by Laura Dronzek
Greenwillow Books, 2016.  Picture book.

Kevin Henkes writes a beautifully simple narrative about waiting for Spring.  Sprinkled with bits of rhyme and alliteration ("there will be buds and bees and boots and bubbles"), this is a fantastic read-aloud for the youngest listeners.  Droznek's gorgeous acrylic illustrations are a captivating view of the world's transformation to Spring.  It's no surprise that this delightful, best-selling picture book has received numerous starred reviews from the likes of School Library JournalHorn Book, and Booklist.  Little ones will love When Spring Comes!
