Synopsis

Mother Earth rouses her
daughters -- March,
April, and May.
"You must wake the
world to start a new day."

But sisters March, April, and May begin quarreling as soon as they awake from their long winter's sleep. They are so busy competing with each other that they have forgotten that it's their job to make the world blossom into springtime.

Can Mother Earth soothe her daughters and stop their silly squabbling?

Will spring ever arrive?

Lynn Plourde's bouncy text and Greg Couch's luminous illustrations continue the story of Mother Earth and her children. Families everywhere will herald the arrival of spring!
