Spring’s Sprung

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Greg Couch
Simon & Schuster, 2002

Mother Earth rouses her daughters,
March, April, and May.
“You must wake the world
to start a new day.”
The Spring sisters groan,
don’t even budge,
till Mother Earth asks,
“Do you each need a nudge?”
“No,” “No,” “No,”
they say so quick.
“We’ll all be dressed
in a flickety-flick.”

The Spring sisters race to get dressed, but then each wants Mother Earth to proclaim her the “fastest dresser.” Next, they practice their spring songs, and each wants to be called the “best singer.” In this story of sibling rivalry, which Spring sister does Mother Earth love the best? Mother Earth settles the sisters’ squabble to everyone’s satisfaction. At last content, the Spring sisters skip off, arm and arm, to coax their sister Summer to come out and play.
