The Spring Celebration is a children's picture book about the coming of spring in the northern Manitoba village of Brochet. A young Cree girl named Iskotew is excited as the entire community awaits the first signs of spring. When spring arrives, the whole village turns out for a community picnic. One Sunday, the community decides the time for spring has arrived and everyone prepares for the day by cooking bannock, moose meat, and fish. The children are sent out to pick the cranberries that where frozen under the snow. These cranberries are boiled to make a delicious dessert. Everyone has fun at the picnic on an island located across a frozen lake. Even though it is officially spring, the lake remains frozen. This is a charming story that is illustrated with soft pastel drawings. It recalls an event that the author participated in as a child.
