Book Review: "Spring Is Here"

Bear sleeping

Spring Is Here by Will Hillenbrand is a nice bright springy book that will attract young readers.  Of course the pages are very colorful with pictures and short reading sentences. The story line is great: Mole is excited about spring coming in.  He spends his time trying to wake up Bear to celebrate the spring season.  But, Bear will not wake up, and so Mole does some things to get Bear up.

The story has some action words that are color-coded. Children and parents can act out some of these words to make the story even more exciting. The book has a surprising ending that is funny. 

Read this book to discover Mole and Bear’s friendship.  I guarantee this story will make you smile.
