Description

When the flowers begin to bloom
and the world starts turning green,
animals everywhere are born . . .
including the noisy ducklings

From the creator of A Book of Sleep and Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit comes a beautiful book of baby animals. Travel with the curious duck and visit babies around the world on their very first day of life.
The Boston Globe calls Il Sung Na's art -so joyous, so jubilantly colorful, it feels celebratory and poetic even when the story is simple and spare.-
