A Spring Stroll in the City

By Cathy Goldberg Fishman

Illustrated by Melanie Hall

Spring stroll in the city
What do I see?
One giant shamrock.
Two kites in a tree.

Take a stroll through the city in springtime and experience the sights, sounds, colors, and smells of the multitude of different holidays we celebrate this season. From St. Patrick’s Day and Easter to Nowruz and Cinco de Mayo, everyone has a reason to celebrate. With simple rhymes, a counting pattern, and stunning papercraft art reminiscent of Ezra Jack Keats, this diverse board book is the perfect introduction to the cultural melting pot that makes the city so special.
