robinLady Winter refuses to allow Sister Spring to turn her white world to green. Instead, she places an icy white blanket over Sister Spring to keep the world in frost. The trees and creatures of the forest hold a meeting at robin’s bequest to find a way to awaken Sister Spring. One by one Lady Winter outwits them by putting winter blankets on bear and skunk, wrapping leaves around caterpillar, and causing maple tree to cry sweet tears. Robin, however, bravely flies to Mother Sun to capture the morning light that awakens Sister Spring. In this sweet pourquois story, a satisfying explanation is given for each creature’s nature and physical look. The lovely pastel drawings shed a soft glow upon the landscapes and the main characters. Young children will enjoy listening to this fanciful account of how the seasons change.
