When a young boy sends his kite up into the air to ask the world Where is Spring? , the abstract concept of the season comes to life through spare verse and lush illustration. The sparrow, the seagull, the swallow, and the sun gently open the reader's eye to the surrounding beauty of the blossoming world. The poem's rhythmic language and strong musicality take young readers on a creative journey over field, forest, meadow, and lake. Simple language and gentle repetition create a comforting, lyrical flow that is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves.
