How Do You Know It's Spring?

TITLE:  How Do You Know It's Spring?
AUTHOR:  Ruth Owen

Learn about the signs of spring with this educational book.  Included is information about new plants, buds, baby animals, and weather.

This is a well done book and would be great for the primary classroom library.  The photographs are wonderful and clearly labeled.  Special words in the text are done with bold print, and there is a page at the end called "Science Words" with these pictured and defined..  Another thing I liked was how various activities are included for kids to try.  One of these is to record the time it gets dark for a week.

It is for ages 5-8.  The AR reading level is 3.6.
