has a greenish hum
that you can only hear
if you put your ear to the ground
and close your eyes"
I love this illustration and traced each little hole imagining the animals humming about spring. Kids will love tracing each burrow through the dirt. Julie Fogliano has written an imaginative story about the seasons easily giving us hope that spring will come and those little seedling will pop their heads out. Stead's illustrations match and even make the visual in my head even better. Her little boy is adorable in his striped shirts and his little red wagon. I for one am ready with spade in hand to begin digging in my own garden and this book will make a wonderful read-aloud for springtime activities. Enjoy this matching video for the book.
