One of my favorite themes that Margaret Wise Brown explores in her writing for children is Spring. MWB focuses on the changes that happen in spring. MWB always knew how to marry the perfect illustrator to her words, making reading to children a multi media event.
There is a wonderful article by Danielle Ridolfi called
“Margaret Wise Brown’s Celebration of Spring” Published by Washington University in St. Louis ~ University Library on February 1, 2023
