Hoppy is a small rabbit who wakes up for spring, but finds snow covering the ground. He wakes up again, smells the flowers, and knows that spring has sprung. He hears the birds chirping in the trees, sees the lambs in the meadow, tastes the fresh green grass, feels the warm ground with his feet and knows that spring has finally come! He wakes up all his rabbit friends and they enjoy the first day of spring together.
Tim Hopgood, award-winning illustrator, tells the charming story of Hoppy and springtime for preschool-age children. Young readers will enjoy this book about a little rabbit enjoying the world through each of the five senses. This book also teaches about hibernation and the season of spring. The illustrations are created with collage in beautiful springtime colors.
