The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

This Bulletin Dozen is formatted as a double-sided, tri-fold brochure. Select double-sided option when printing or print out both pages and photocopy accordingly. PDF (Portable Document Format) files are read using Adobe's Acrobat Reader. Download a free copy of Acrobat or read more information on downloading PDFs.

Spring Will Come: A Hopeful Seasonal Dozen

--selected by Deborah Stevenson, Editor

We’re having a February here that makes the gloomiest groundhog predictions seem wildly optimistic, so we offer a dozen to cheer you and us up with the promise of eventual spring.  There are poetry and prose, fiction and photoessay, myth and truth, so there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate—or even soberly reconsider—spring in whatever way most suited to a young reader’s taste.
