Spring is here, and with the new season come trees full of life, color . . . and blossoms! From the creators of LEAF JUMPERS and WINTER TREES, SPRING BLOSSOMS introduces readers to a variety of different flowering trees.

During a stroll through the forest, two children come across the small and white flowers on a crab apple tree, the rich, red buds on a red maple, and many more. Along the way, readers learn that some trees have both male and female flowers—each with a distinctive appearance. Back matter includes extended botanical facts and more information about trees and their life cycles.

Told in lyrical rhymes with beautiful linoleum-cut illustrations, SPRING BLOSSOMS offers a unique blend of science, poetry, and art studies.
