Baby Loves Spring!
Karen Katz. Little Simon, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-1-4424-2745-7
One of Katz’s characteristically cherubic babies explores the delights of spring, ready for the inevitable spring shower in a yellow raincoat. Large flaps reveal the answers to questions like, “What is squiggling in the dirt?” (in this case, rows of “wiggly worms” smile at the girl from behind one flap). A fluffy cloud flap shows “big raindrops” as a storm rolls in (to the baby’s delight), and a resultant puddle contains “Funny little frogs! Croak! Croak!” Katz’s crayon accents and cheery collages deliver an uplifting and accessible primer on the season for inquisitive toddlers.
