Publisher's Weekly Review

Three pudgy gouache rabbits explore the colorful marvels of spring in this bilingual book with words in English and Mandarin Chinese characters. Loosely outlined in black, the rabbits have a simple elegance that echoes the mood of quiet observation. The rabbits see "flowers like yellow stars," mistake a purple butterfly for a flower, and spot a rainbow: "Ah! A spray of blossoms in the sky." Endnotes provide pinyin pronunciations for the story and an explanation of Chinese tonal marks. Available simultaneously: A Nest in Springtime: A Bilingual Book of Numbers. Ages 1-4.
