School Library Journal - 11/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1—The latest alliterative installment in Goldstone's season series (Awesome Autumn and Wonderful Winter) doesn't disappoint. It presents a neat overview of spring and is chock-full of interesting facts for young readers. Vibrant photographs grace each page, making it all the more appealing for little ones. The explanation of the science behind rain, rainbows, seeds, and more is presented in an accessible way. In addition, readers will learn about animals, spring flowers, how an umbrella works, the sounds and sights of spring, and spring celebrations, culminating in "some spectacular spring activities" (seed jars, mud painting, and more), including instructions—a bonus for makerspaces and caregivers. VERDICT Consider this latest from Goldstone wherever early science books are needed.—Megan Kilgallen, Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
