Kitten's Spring

Spring has arrived and all kinds of wonderful things are happening on the farm. Kitten goes outdoors to see what is happening. Down at the pond a “frog croaks” while a little tadpole swims around. In the farmyard a hen and her chick scratch the ground looking for good things to eat. In the barn the “Cow moos,/ Calf winks.”

Children will enjoy the minimal rhyming text in this charming seasonal book. The artwork is created using self-hardening clay, paint, and other items, and the effect is quite delightful.
