This is an interesting tale about how everything comes to bloom during spring. It could be used to talk about different genres of writing, i.e realistic fiction vs. fantasy. It could also be a fun book to read when talking about the seasons. The only part that I disagreed with was that it reinforced the stereotype of women sewing clothes and boys playing with bugs.
