It’s spring and everywhere birds are calling out to each other in The Song of Spring by Hendrik Jonas (ISBN: 978-3-7913-7379-9; March 2019; Ages 2-5; Hardcover $12.95; 52 pages). But one bird has forgotten which sound to make. He tries “Woof,” and meets a dog, who encourages him to try “Oink,” with the expected result. Moo, Hee-Haw, Meh, Meow—each successive call adds another animal friend to the page. Will the young bird find another bird friend? As young readers are introduced to each type of animal and their sounds, Hendrik Jonas’ clever illustrations grow increasingly crowded. The result is a beautiful celebration of friendship that will delight young children everywhere. 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is ADORABLE! I loved it cover to cover and I cannot wait to share it in my classes. The illustrations are darling and the story is funny and sweet. Kids are going to get transfixed by the
animal characters because each of them has a distinct personality. Kids will love watching to see if little bird can figure out the song of spring with the help of some new friends! A super beautiful book both in story and illustrations!

HENDRIK JONAS is a Berlin-based illustrator whose work has appeared in The Times and The Guardian. This is his third book for children.
