Description
March comes in with a roar.
He rattles your windows
and scratches at your door.
In this exuberant, rhythmic story, March, personified as a lion, enters a boy's cozy home and leaves a trail of snow flurries and muddy footprints. The boy calmly observes the pouncing, howling, growling lion until in comes the lamb on the crest of a huge sneeze.
Escorted by grass, flowers, sunshine, showers, and animal babies, the lamb brings forth spring.
