I remembered reading this book as a child. It was interesting re-reading it as an adult. Some surprising moments, like a little girl saying she hated her grandmother! And definitely a case of undiagnosed ADD.

I have loved this book since I was a child. Beautifully illustrated with rich, realistic line drawings, the story is still as fresh as the first day of spring.

Meg Copeland, the youngest Copeland child (whom we first met in "Mine for Keeps") is now in 5th grade. Bored easily, she daydreams her time away with her mischievous friend, Charlotte. Meg's older sister, Sally, is now in high school and proudly declares that she is no longer hampered by having cerebral palsy or having to use crutches. Meg resents her and finds her bossy. Mindy, the oldest Copeland child is in college and Meg has her eye on Mindy's room. Kent, the middle child, is close in age with Sally and spends more time playing outside with other boys his age.

Meg's redoubtable grandmother moves in; her dream of having Mindy's room is dashed. The two clash. They finally connect when Meg learns more about her and why she was named after her.

After failing miserably the first term, Meg forges her father's name on her report card. Once confronted, a plan for a study group is implemented and her grades rise. Meg still feels left out and wants something that's "just her own," a dog.

Meg finally gets a puppy, a Westie like Sally has, a dog she all her own. She names her dog Robbie.

This is a lovely story with delightful characters that are unforgettable. I especially loved Meg's father who is a gentle, articulate man who appears to have his family's best interest at heart. This book is a treasure.

I first read this book in 1970 when I was in fifth grade. I was very impressed by the way in which the feelings of Meg, the main character, were brought out. The plot was fairly simple: instead of getting a room of her own, as she hoped she would, Meg is forced to share with her handicapped elder sister when her grandmother unexpectedly moves in with the family. The grandmother is old fashioned and insists on calling Meg Margaret, which annoys Meg no end. A deep and abiding resentment festers in Meg, who is not able to keep up in school, but will not ask for help. Things come to a head when she forges a parent's signature, rather than confess to the failing grades on her report card.

Since this is a book by Jean Little, the solution to all these problems naturally involves adopting a Yorkshire terrier and putting it through obedience training. "Spring Begins in March" is in fact the sequel to "Mine for Keeps", in which the elder sister, Sally, who has cerebral palsy, solves all her problems by getting a dog. But that's not really why this is such a great book. It's Meg's moodiness, her less than positive attitude and her mixed feelings that came through loud and clear when I read this story as a child.

A couple of years ago, I bought a used copy and read it to my daughter. It was still that good!

I give the book four stars rather than five because of the rather conventional morality that permeates it, but the emotional resonance with the main character is the real strength of this classic!

"Spring begins in March" is, in a way, a sequel to "Mine for keeps", Jean Little's very first book. But while the latter is about Sarah, who has cerebral palsy, "Spring..." is about Sarah's little sister, Meg. Meg, by far the youngest in her family, does not have an easy time, struggling at school for concentration and at home for a place of her own. Having her own room, promised to her for her birthday, is prevented by her grandmother's moving in with the family. Meg gets a dog instead, but that does not change her feeling lonely and isolated. However, with the help, love and reassurance of her family, once she lets herself be helped, Meg finds ways to deal with her difficulties, and to accept them as challenges rather than unsurmountable problems. Through a diary written by her grandmother when a child, she also learns the important lesson that adults, too, are people with a personal and sometimes intrigueing history!
Jean Little manages once again to let her characters come to life, and looking up from the book, one wonders why they are not sitting in the same room with oneself and start talking! Her language is, as always, beautiful, simple and fascinatingly rich at the same time. The perspective allows a different view on an already well-known and well-loved family, and Meg is portrayed as much with accuracy as with love, humour, and deep understanding. And on top of that, the solutions for Meg are not only realistic, but recommendable! A wonderful book, not only for springtime!
