Rating: 5/5

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
