Spectacular Spring by Bruce Goldstone – ADVISABLE

Goldstone, Bruce Spectacular Spring by Bruce Goldstone, 24 pages.  NONFICTION. Henry Holt (Macmillan), 2018.  $18.

This book features large pages with tons of bright photographs of everything spring. It goes into light details about seeds, flowers blooming, weather, baby animals, and much more. It also features pages about what spring looks, feels, smells, and is shaped like.

This is the perfect book to share with K-2nd graders. It could be used as a read-a-loud or a great jumping off point for unique and thought provoking activities- what does spring feel like? What is it shaped like? This series of season books is my favorite so far and would be my first to recommend to teachers. Its cover is appealing as well and might see circulation on its own with young readers.
