9780062430335: Time for Spring

Discover another timeless classic from the creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon! This poignant story about a little girl and her snowman was first published in 1957 and has been out of print for decades. Now available in a fully-restored edition with enhanced cover artwork, this storybook makes a delightful springtime gift and is great for Easter baskets too!

With more text than the Harold and the Purple Crayon books, Time for Spring is just right for children beginning to read on their own, but the artwork on each spread means even the youngest readers can enjoy it, too. An excellent pick for parents who want to explore themes of patience and friendship with their children, or for anyone who wants to expand their Crockett Johnson library. Pair with Crockett Johnson's Will Spring Be Early? Or Will Spring Be Late? for even more springtime reading fun!

Irene is ready for winter to be over, but her snowman is not, and says that as long as he's around, springtime won't come. Can Irene and the snowman find a way to make both their wishes come true?

Review:

Praise for the original 1957 edition: Another original whimsy to further endear the creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon to his growing audience. --Chicago Tribune"

Both text and pictures are funny in a quiet, understated manner and, at the end, one s relief for Irene is tinctured with a touch of poignancy when the snow man takes her advice. It s the kind of book that leaves one wondering just a little. --New York Times Book Review"

A wonderful little book largely made up of conversations between a small girl and a snowman who obligingly melts away when he learns that the child longs for the coming of spring. --Publishers Weekly"

About the Author:

Crockett Johnson was born in New York and spent his childhood on Long Island. He acquired his art education at New York University and at Cooper Union.

For many years the author and illustrator of the popular comic strip Barnaby, Mr. Johnson also illustrated many wonderful children's books, including Ruth Krauss's The Carrot Seed. He is perhaps best remembered for his own slyly engaging books about a small boy named Harold and his journeys with a purple crayon.
