I love the counterpoint between the dark of winter and soft of spring in the illustrations of ‘When Comes Spring’ as well bold bright and pastel and that of rhyming verse and declarative sentences. It's brilliant!

A fun read-aloud about the changes in nature as winter leaves and spring arrives. Children will enjoy the colorful pictures and the surprise ending.

This has just become my favorite Kevin Henkes book! The artwork is lovely and bright and the story is perfect for talking to young children about the changeability and beauty of spring. It would work well for story time too!

A new Kevin Henkes book is always cause for celebration, especially one as joyful and beautifully illustrated as this one. Parents rejoicing at the end of winter will want to snatch up this lovely book for repeated readings with their little ones.
