Discover another timeless classic from the creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon! This poignant story about a little girl and her snowman was first published in 1957 and has been out of print for decades. Now available in a fully-restored edition with enhanced cover artwork, this storybook makes a delightful springtime gift and is great for Easter baskets too!

With more text than the Harold and the Purple Crayon books, Time for Spring is just right for children beginning to read on their own, but the artwork on each spread means even the youngest readers can enjoy it, too. An excellent pick for parents who want to explore themes of patience and friendship with their children, or for anyone who wants to expand their Crockett Johnson library. Pair with Crockett Johnson's Will Spring Be Early? Or Will Spring Be Late? for even more springtime reading fun!

Irene is ready for winter to be over, but her snowman is not, and says that as long as he's around, springtime won't come. Can Irene and the snowman find a way to make both their wishes come true?
