A Nest in Springtime

A Bilingual Book of Numbers

By Belle Yang; Belle Yang (Illustrator)

Candlewick Press (MA), Board Books, 9780763652791, 24pp.

Publication Date: April 24, 2012

In English and Mandarin Chinese, Belle Yang's bilingual board books celebrate the natural world with simple concepts and beautiful, bold illustrations.

In springtime, when wild geese come to nest, there are eggs for counting. But how many goslings will there be? And how many in the whole paddling family, when Papa and Mama join them? Tonal marks used in the book are explained in a final spread, along with a pinyin translation of the Chinese characters.
