A very clever book of alphabet acrostic poetry. I think I'd use some of the poems, but it would probably be a bit too much reading the entire book. My favorites were:

Green leaves overhead, a
Rug of green underfoot,
And the air between
Sweet with the green
Smell of Spring.

Beyond our
Upstairs window
Dead-looking branches
Suddenly spring to life.

Egrets, ducks, and
Geese nest in the marsh
Grass, waiting for their
Shells to hatch.

Suitable methodology for presenting information about a season
Poetic descriptions of a variety of vernal scenes
Reading it isn't as tedious as most poetic experiments
Interest is maintained due to the crisp direct writing
Not an abundance of wasted verse
Gaga ooh la la
