Spring is right around the corner.
I’m in Canada and let me tell you, the snow this year is putting up a good fight. It doesn’t seem to want Spring to come but eventually Winter will finally admit defeat. There was some sun today, things are finally looking up.
Speaking of looking up. Have you seen any bunnies bouncing around in the sky?
Look closer and you might just catch a glimpse of one.
Spring Hare is a tale of a girl and her Rabbit on their adventures on a sunny afternoon. Some pages are filled with uncertainty. Some pages have animals. Some are sad or lonely. Some even have adventures that are out of this world.
When I introduced this young hare to my four year old he got a little smile on his face. I knew his curiosity was spiked. He loved watching the new adventures and making up what was happening. This is the first book that I let him explore and read to us without me reading it aloud first. Now this book has no words. It solely relies on imagery to tell a story. He had no idea what was going to happen on the next page. It was adorable to see him set up a story to realize that the book went in a different direction.
The art was well done and very colorful. While also being very gentle on the eyes. A perfect combination for a child’s book.
Once spring finally hits here, I can’t wait to lie on our backs and read this book again and again while making up our own adventures in the sky. Spring Hare, perfectly sets up the opportunity to have your kids tell their own stories using either words, language or pictures.
How will your kids add to the adventures of Spring Hare? I’d love to see their additions. Share them in the comments.
