Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

This is a definitely different way of introducing young children to
excerpts of poems by a wide range of poets through
a story of Ivy Van Allsberg who is waiting for spring!
Choosing extracts like this is an amazing thing.
This author has done to make a new rhyme
Telling how things change one month at a time.
At the end, in the bibliography, the author shares with you
The poets and poems these lines are from too.
So here you can read the original rhymes
And see who wrote each and every line.
Throughout it is illustrated in brilliant style
So go take a look for a little while
I’m sure that you’ll be impressed and find that you
Like this book almost as much as I do, too!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too
for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
