And Then It's Spring by Julie Fogliano

In 14th place for 2012 picture book:

Synopsis: Following a snow-filled winter, a young boy and his dog decide that they've had enough of all that brown and resolve to plant a garden. They dig, they plant, they play, they wait . . . and wait . . . until at last, the brown becomes a more hopeful shade of brown, a sign that spring may finally be on its way.

The majority of the reviews range from "Great!" to "Amazing!" I appreciate the illustrations done by Erin E. Stead.

She did this one too:

 I was just waiting ... Which, you might think was the undertone of the book, "to be waiting for something spectacular." And I was, but the narration fell short of that. It was... bland.

It's not that I didn't enjoy this book. It was just one of those books that my son and I finished and it was immediately pushed to the side as he threw another one in my lap. 

At the end of the day, when it comes to And Then It's Spring?
