Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring
Author and Illustrator Kenard Pak 2020 Age range: 3-7
Take a journey as winter ends and spring begins with a boy and his dog as he says hello to the winter night. The boy greets the frozen pond, the sleeping fish, and the rocks and sticks that are still frozen. One morning, however, he says
“Good morning! We glow at dawn…I illuminate everything around you.”
The earth is changing winter thaw is here, there is new leaves, and animals begin to stir.
The boy says hello to the running brook he notices that the fish are stirring, and the birds are back.
“Goodbye, winter. Hello spring!”
