After the winter we've had in the Midwest -- and across much of the rest of the country -- we could all use a little spring. And this book captures the mood of anticipation with delightful text and softly focused illustrations. A boy and his dog are waiting, waiting, waiting for the brown to disappear… planting seeds, watching the ground, listening, listening…and then…. If you are looking for a wonderful, gentle read, here it is.
