Book Review: Ivy In Bloom: The Poetry of Spring by Vanita Oelschlager

I really love Vanita Oslschlager’s books. They’re always catchy and simple with great messages for kids and they never talk down to kids but still manage to be on their level. 
This time with the help of illustrations by Kristin Blackwood she tells the story of a little girls experiences with the seasons as she waits longingly for Spring. 
The long poem that tells the story gets it’s inspiration from many classic poets who wrote about Spring. Those poems are at the end of the book. This is a great way to introduce children to classic poets. 
The illustrations are my favorite ones yet in a book by Oelschlager. They’re are detailed and look like paintings or a really great cartoon. They brings the character of Ivy to life brilliantly. 
Ivy in Bloom is available now on Amazon and other places book are sold.
