Everyone has that feeling at the end of a long winter, the impatience for spring to come and bring all of its new life and new hope. The same impatience you feel when something old has passed and you are waiting to see what wonderful new thing will replace it.

In this remarkable story, readers meet a young boy anxiously awaiting the sprouting of some seeds he has carefully planted in the brown earth. Like a mother hen, he watches over the small mounds of dirt. Day after day and week after week, he waters them and worries over them. And then finally it happens. What was once a brown world is filled with color and new life.

Fogilano's sparse but lyrical text perfectly match Caldecott-Medalist Stead's woodblock printing and pencil illustrations. The result is a book that begs to be read over and over again despite the season.
