My Review:
 Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal for all living things. This is just a precious picture book, perfect to teach your child about the world around them and what springtime is all about. Bunny sees such a beautiful, perfect world around him when it's spring. Each day he is awakened to some new growth such as a plant or flower or some new sound such as the birds singing. Each day his world is alive with activity, but soon the seasons begin to change and he is so afraid that the world is dying. His parents are always by his side reassuring him to be patient. And just as he is use to the winter, it turns and welcomes spring all over again.

 This is a precious children's book, filled with touching prose and beautiful illustrations! A sweet book to read at Easter!
