We first meet Greenlee as a young girl of three, in the flowering springtime of life. Greenlee Is Growing follows her through the spring of her youth and the summer of her adulthood. By the end of the book, she is a lovely old woman knitting by the fire in the cold days of winter.
Springtime is here! Springtime is here! Snowstorms are gone and flowers appear.
Summer is here! Summer is here! The days are much warmer and rainbows appear.
Autumn is here! Autumn is here! Red, gold, and brown leaves and pumpkins appear.
Winter is here! Winter is here! The days are much shorter and snowflakes appear.
