Il Sung Na! I absolutely adore A Book of Sleep. I love the layered illustrations and the whimsy.
Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit: A Book of Changing Seasons follows in similar style to A Book of Sleep. The animals in the forest are getting ready for winter. We have geese flying away from the cold and bears hibernating. But he also includes a couple unusual animals: turtles swimming to warmer water and alligators (or crocodiles) still in the water. My favorite are the squirrels, mainly due to the fact that my 3 year old calls them "swirls". The narrator on this journey is our dear white rabbit... who, as we move through winter into spring, changes color.
I think this would make a fine storytime book about the seasons. Be sure to brush up on why the rabbit (or hare) changes colors.
Absolutely charming. Extremely beautiful. Unquestionably talented.
Coming soon: Hide and Seek (June)
