Spring Song!

  Author:   Sheree Fitch  
  Artist :   Deb Plastid    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

A playful, poetic picture book celebrating the coming of spring from the award-winning author of Summer Feet and featuring luminous original artwork by an internationally renowned quilt artist.

Buds of leaves
still curled in knots
just like teeny polka dots
spots of green on bare-branched trees
soon buds will bloom and leaves
unfurl
yes, shimmery light
on every thing.

Spring is sometimes a long time coming. As snow melts and winter slowly blows away, the earth begins its unfolding of new life and hopeful greening. While we can still snowshoe through the soft white and sip the clear, wintry air, we dream of the sparkle of spring, that wind-chapped-cheek time, where “baby fiddleheads sleep/like so many questions deep” and the sun comes “smiling in/as longer days of light begin.”

A poetic celebration of the season, Spring Song! invites readers into a rural family home and the natural world that surrounds them. Tiny details and clues emerging from hibernation are a source of wonder, seeds hold secrets of sunflowers, and mudliscious puddles await!

A collection of verse germinating for years, ever since author Sheree Fitch first experienced the magical artwork of artist Deb Plestid, whose luminous, original quiltwork illustrates this gentle, vibrant book, brimming with the joy of spring.

Her eye is drawn mostly to nature, mathematics, light, and shadow; exploring colours, textures, and life. Her work is in collections in North America, Europe, and the Middle East. Her singular pleasure is eliciting a smile with her work.
