A beautifully illustrated rhyming story about spring.
The robin told the rabbit...
The rabbit told the deer...
The deer told the duck...
Then all the birds began to sing
To tell the bears, "Wake up, it's spring!"
Samantha Berger and Pamela Chanko's breezy rhyming text and Melissa Sweet's charming watercolor illustrations spread the news that spring is here! This is a board book edition of a book originally published in the Hello Reader line.
