Raising children has its ups and downs, but I believe most mothers make it a point to cherish the fond memories. As children get older, we often let these fond memories lie dormant in the file of our minds until they are brought to the surface.

Reading First Spring by Margaret Rose jarred my brain into relishing once again many happy times I experienced with my three children when they were toddlers.
First Spring is a delightful nursery rhyme about a baby boy who explores Mother Nature with his mother for the first time.

Mothers are special in that they are never too tired to teach and help their children discover the world around them.

The mom in First Spring goes out with her baby and observes her precious bundle of joy as he discovers the world around him. She blows bubbles and the enchanted little boy tries to catch them. Next she teaches him about the budding flower in the ground and the squirmy little bug.

If you are a mother or grandmother reading First Spring will take you down memory lane and remind you of the fun times you experienced when your child was a toddler. If you are not yet a mom, this well written nursery rhyme will give you something to look forward to.

The delicate illustrations by Marina Movshina complement the tale quite well, bringing the story to full life visually.

  6. Connie…I’m glad you visited. I think the book can be both a trip down memory lane or something to anticipate in the future if you don’t have children. Enjoy your evening.
