I decided to read this book because the cover had the word spring on it and I wanted to read about spring...instead. this is more of a seasons book. Mom met dad in the spring, they got married in the summer, the baby was conceived in Fall, the baby gets bigger in mama tummy in Winter and then the baby is born in Spring.

A mother and child review the seasons highlighting the significance of each for their family. Pastel illustrations give the book the hazy sweet feelings of memories. PreK-2.
