Picture Book Puzzler: Spring has Sprung!

Happy Spring! There's one favorite classic children's novel of mine that I re-read every year in the spring. Can you guess what book it is by the quote below? “Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like? You don't see it in rooms if you are ill." "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth..." What a lovely and perfect way to describe spring. Do you recognize the book? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answer.

Colin in The Secret Garden, of course! What a perfect book to read for spring, about the return of life to the earth and to people.
