Spring is Coming
How does this bird know that spring is coming? ?De donde crees que vinieron estas flores? and other important questions lead children and their parents through a delightful investigation of the wonders of spring. Vibrant cutouts almost leap off the page to engage even the youngest and squirmiest and let them know – this book is for them. In English and Spanish, every page reminds us of our own discovery of the magic in the air at the first hint
of spring, gently encouraging curiosity and learning.
Yes, something is stirring…
It’s happening below,
Above us, around us,
We sense it! We know!
Oh yes, we know,
That spring is coming!
Sí, un nuevo resplandor
Nace por debajo del terreno,
Por encima y a nuestro alrededor.
¡Se ve! ¡Se siente su estreno!
¡Sí, se escucha su estruendo!
¡La primavera su llegada está haciendo!

"Read To Me!" is an amazing, vibrant, verse and collage enticement to
the joy of reading books to children. Winner of the Moonbeam Children's
Book Award, "Read To Me!" is characterized by lilting, lifting rhyming
scenarios that beg an adult to "Read to me! Read to me!" again and again
in widely contrasting situations, at work, at play, indoors, outdoors, at bedtime, in daytime, and anytime. Charming bright colorful collages illustrate the many places where reading can be shared and enjoyed. The collages are made of
cut out scraps of fabric made by kindergartners and 6th graders who paired
in a collaborative art project. They are completely creative, ebullient, and delightful. "Read To Me!" is created from a heartfelt desire to empower children to enjoy richer, fuller, safer lives by cultivating early literacy skills. At the end
of "Read To Me!" are some important tips and helpful things that an adult
can do to help their child gets ready to read. But the most important message
of "Read To Me!" is that every child loves to be read to because it is fun,
and a tangible way of communicating parental love and support.
Chris Bridge’s latest book helps parents kindle
their little readers’ curiosity with the wonder of spring.
