Bauer, Marion Dane. Crinkle, Crackle, CRACK It’s Spring. PICTURE BOOK. Illustrated by John Shelley. Holiday House, 2015. $16.95.
When strange noises and a friendly bear greet a girl in the middle of the night outside her house, she is intrigued and wants to know what it’s time for. The bear tells her over and over again that it’s time, but she knows not what he is referring to. Although, she picks up clues along the way to eventually solve the mystery. It’s a very cute take on the change of the seasons and will keep little ones guessing.
