Über diesen Titel


In a celebration of nature's renewal, Wells' words and Jeffers' art depict the thawing of a forest. Look and listen as a young girl finds the harbingers of spring--the expectant doe, a bird singing from an icy pine branch, field mice stirring in their burrows--and rejoice at the return of spring.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 ``God made me new/ Just like the spring that waits beneath the snow./ God made me small/ Just like the fawn that sleeps inside the doe,'' begins this paean to life. Apple trees seen white with snow in the opening endpapers have turned white with blooms by the close. In between, nine glorious double-page paintings illustrate the promise of spring and new beginnings as expressed in rhyme by a small girl who is pictured with animals in idealized scenes, realistic in style. She faces an equally bright-eyed owl on a snowy evening, along with a wolf, an ermine, and a rabbit; and is eventually seen tearing off her jacket and hurling herself into a bare-bellied, bare-footed handstand in a field of flowers, butterflies, and other animalsa visual collage of joyous new life. Both Wells and Jeffers have produced a beautiful book whose strength and simplicity keep it from sentimentality. Whether used to stimulate awareness and reflect wonderas with Marcia Brown's creative trio (Listen to a Shape, etc. all Watts, 1979)or as a devotional, the peaceful, exuberant mood it evokes is refreshing.
