When winter is at its coldest and darkest, take heart! Every day the sun shines longer, Spring is on its way!

All winter, the days grow a little bit longer,
The nights grow a little bit shorter,
until the day becomes exactly as long as the night.
On that day we say...

This bright, bouncy, and deliriously colorful picture book is an ode to the joys of spring, encouraging everyone who waits out the slow lengthening of days through the end of winter. From earmuffed crossing guards to sweater wearing dogs, from painters of flowers to planters of seeds, Happy Springtime! celebrates the burst of life following the thaw of winter.

Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honoree Kate McMullan's jubilant love-letter to this exciting time of year is the perfect book to bring in the season of birth and renewal, especially when accompanied by the riotous watercolor illustrations of Sujean Rim.

Kate McMullan has collaborated with her husband Jim on many popular picture books, including I'm Brave!, I'm Fast!, I'm Big!, I'm Bad!, I'm Dirty!, and I Stink!, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book. She is also the author of As Warm as the Sun, the Geisel Honor Book Pearl and Wagner: One Funny Day, and the middle grade series Dragon Slayers' Academy and Myth-o-Mania, the Greek myths as told by Hades. She lives in New York City.

Sujean Rim is best known for her signature watercolor designs. Originally a shoe and accessory designer, Sujean has gone on to illustrate numerous picture books including Zoogie Boogie Fever! and the Birdie series. She lives with her husband in Westchester, New York.
