What makes spring spectacular? Bruce Goldstone's Spectacular Spring explores this season of the year through a look at its sights, shapes, sounds, feelings, colors, and smells. Springtime is a time of renewal, change, and life, and the book also explores how animals, insects, seeds, weather, and people act during the Springtime. The book also features Spring-themed activity ideas, with instructions included for each.
This book is the perfect companion for making the most of a truly beautiful time of year. Vibrant photographs and text features are attention-grabbing and interesting. Written for a four to eight-year-old audience, Goldstone's explanations of various phenomena are clear and age-appropriate while also remaining accurate and detailed. Because of the wealth of information provided in the book, young readers may find it difficult to read all in one sitting, but the lack of narrative in the book means that it can be read in any order. Those who enjoyed this book may also be interested in Bruce Goldstone's other seasonal books Awesome Autumn, Wonderful Winter, and Super Summer.
