All the animals are snug in their dens, and cozy for the winter, when they all wake up and smell…something. Soon, all the animals, from the big bears to the tiny snails are racing and sniffing to see what it is: the first spring flower.
This book is a great book to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring for all ages.
