The woodland animals awake from their deep winter's sleep to discover the first sign of spring'a flower blooming in the snow.

1950 Caldecott Honor Book




About the Author

Ruth Krauss, a member of the experimental Writer’s Laboratory at the Bank Street School in New York City in the 1940s, imaginatively used humor and invented words to create some of the very first books for children that highlighted a child’s inner life. She collaborated with some of the greatest illustrators in children’s literature, including Maurice Sendak and her husband, Crockett Johnson.
