Spring is in the Air is a coloring book featuring several Disney princesses in springtime scenes. The featured princesses include Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Snow White, and Tiana.
Most of the pages are coloring scenes, but there are a few activity pages including word finds, counting items, and a maze. It also has two pages of fuzzy stickers in the middle.
Each page has at least one short sentence or question on it that can make it a fun activity to encourage beginning readers. The sentences or questions on the pages sometimes link together a series of pages, but for the most part they can also stand alone if pages end up being torn out.
Overall Spring is in the Air is a good coloring book with detailed scenes and accompanying text to encouraging reading. The activity pages are somewhat weak, though, with the solutions being printed on the bottom of the same page as the activity. Sure, it is easy to cheat when they are at the back of the book, but being right there makes it hard not to cheat even for those that do not want to.
