As the sun rises slowly over the farmlands, subtle signs of spring begin to emerge. From thin streams of melted snow-water snaking down the windowpanes, to newborn lambs nestled in a mound of sun-warmed hay, to red-budded maple trees swollen with rising sap, the beauty of a world awakening from winter is revealed in stirring detail. Lyrical prose by Steven Schnur is in perfect harmony with Stacey Schuett's warm paintings, celebrating the arrival of spring and the energy and renewal it brings.
Summary: It begins with a warm wind late at night, sighing through the hemlock trees. . . . It's springtime at last! As the sun rises slowly over a sleeping farm, small signs of spring begin to appear. From a roofline curtain of dripping icicles to newborn lambs nestled in a mound of sun-warmed hay to pale shoots of field grasses peeking up through melting snow, the magic of a new season is evoked in stirring detail. ~ Spring Thaw - Steven Schnur, Stacey Schuett
