Description

IN TICKLY-TOE GRASS
a buttercup offers up
yellow nose kisses.

The simple delights in baby's natural world--a bird, a fish, a leaf, a snowflake, a raindrop--are celebrated in the traditional Japanese poetic form, the haiku. In just 17 syllables, a moment, a season, the elements are joyfully captured. This peaceful little board book has tabs to encourage little hands to turn the pages and adorable artwork to delight everyone.
