Maurice and his mama are getting ready to hibernate for the long winter, but Maurice is more excited for his first spring ever! He’s so excited that he can’t fall asleep, so he decides to go out looking for spring. Maurice wanders all around the forest, announcing his intention to the other animals of the forest. And then the air starts to smell tangy, and he feels an icy sting on his nose… is that spring?
With Finding Spring, author and illustrator Carin Berger has created a delightful story that little ones are sure to love. Maurice the bear embodies the curiosity that all children possess, and the excitement he feels over his first spring–and his inability to sleep because of it–is something kids will identify with. The pictures, which are cut-paper collages made in Berger’s unique and award-winning style (and will be familiar to readers who have seen other examples of Berger’s work), capture the whimsical nature of this adorable story. Finding Spring is sure to be loved by young kids, older kids, and their parents alike!
