Ivy in Bloom: The Poetry of Spring from Great Poets and Writers from the Past

Seldom does a book offer a sweet poetic tale for children and a more in depth poetic journey for the caregiver, but Ivy in Bloom does just that. Illuminating the story of a girl who longs for spring and then delights in it's waking and blooming around her, and filled with lovely illustrations, Ivy in Bloom captures the yearning for spring and the soul refreshing qualities inspired by early flowers and the joy of warmth. Of course, I then moreover relished the wealth of spring poems collected at the end from which the inspiration for Ivy's story was taken.
This is a lovely book, and I enjoyed sharing it with my child.

I received a free eARC of this title for review purposes. I have not been compensated in any other way for my review, which was not swayed in any way by the free nature of said ARC.
