What do the animals do when the snow falls to the ground and all the trees are bare? Some fly long distances, while some swim to warmer waters. Some take a long, warm sleep where they live, while others have a thick, cozy coat and can stay in the snow!
As with Il Sung Na's previous books, Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit is filled with rich illustrations, charming animals, and a simple, lyrical text—all wrapped up in a gorgeous package. It's a gentle introduction to the ideas of adaptation, hibernation, and migration, and an exhuberant celebration of changing seasons.
Originally from Korea, IL SUNG NA studied illustration at Kingston University in London. A Book of Sleep was his first picture book, followed by The Thingamabob. To learn more about Il Sung Na and his work, please visit IlSungNa.com.
Starred Review, School Library Journal, February 2011:
"Done in ink and oils, overlaid and enhanced digitally with various shapes and layers, the art is vibrant and sports unusual colors with whimsical details. A lovely selection to share with younger children."
