Ready for Spring

Publisher: Tundra Books
What am I going to wear? The question that diverts us all is first presented in the toddler years when the mastery of getting dressed is a triumph and opinions about clothing are emphatic.

These four board books illustrated by collage-artist Marthe Jocelyn are a unique tribute to the colors, textures, and patterns that make clothes a child’s favorite pastime.

Ready for Spring displays a full wardrobe, introducing lovely words like turtleneck and galoshes, and allowing even the very young reader to be an expert on what should be worn next season.

PRAISE FOR

Praise for the series:
“Jocelyn's trademark collages are an important part of the four books. Appropriately, the clothing items are all clearly defined while usually being placed on a patterned or textured background. The background colors mirror the colors one normally sees during a particular season….  In addition to being a public library purchase, the Jocelyn quartet, if not received as a gift at baby showers, is a "must buy" by parents who want to introduce their very young children to the world of imagination contained in books.” Highly Recommended

Praise for Hannah’s Collections:
“Tidy and temptingly tactile collages show the young heroine contemplating her many collections.… Pack rats should all be this artistic.” — Publishers Weekly

Praise for Hannah and the Seven Dresses:
“The vibrant collage art, using fabrics of every colour and texture is the perfect medium for this energetic story.” — Brandon Sun
