When spring returns this year, so will Ideals, with a new springtime edition to celebrate this season of hope. Bursting with color and life, this compilation of beautiful writings paired with full-color photographs and artwork will inspire readers after a long winter. Authors and poets such as Pamela Kennedy and Eileen Spinelli reflect upon the joys and wonders of spring: the first blooms, fresh April showers, lengthening days, and warming temperatures that lift the spirit. Poetry and Bible selections celebrate the cherished family traditions and spiritual significance of the Easter holiday. This collection of prose, poetry, quotes, and favorite recipes invites the season into our hearts and homes. Springtime Ideals 2018, a fresh addition to the 74-year Ideals tradition, will appeal to all whose eyes and hearts watch for signs of spring and find joy in its arrival.
