The snow is melting as the “Sun shines bright. Warm and Light.” Seedlings poke little green spikes out of the earth, and the members of the rabbit family know that spring is finally here. Out in the garden they dig, plant and water, while up in the trees overhead birds take care of their nestlings.

   Spring is also the time when Mrs. Rabbit cleans the house, Mr. Rabbit paints the fence, and little rabbit washes his beloved toys. Spring is “cleaning time” for them all, but it is also play time when the work is done. Little rabbit and his friends have a grand time enjoying outdoor games again, playing hide and seek, and kicking a ball around.

   In this charming board book illustrations touched with textured and glittery surfaces are paired with rhyming verse and sweet illustrations to give children a wonderful gift of spring images and spring adventures.
