Praise For 5 Little Apples (Yonezu Board Book)

"Yusuke Yonezu uses clever cutouts to convey—without ever stating outright—the message that loves completes us . . . ingenious pictures." —Sarah Smith,, on We Love Each Other

"Japanese author/illustrator Yonezu marries color, animal, and shape concepts with die-cuts and a reassuring theme of love in an expertly designed and executed board book. . . . Yonezu’s simple renderings radiate happiness and charm on every page." —Publishers Weekly on We Love Each Other

"I appreciate a publishing company that understands how very difficult it is to make a good board book. . . . this book is pretty much brilliant. It shows animals apart who, when put together, make different shapes. Circles, squares, triangles. . . . The art is bold, colorful, simple, funny, sweet, touching." —Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal on We Love Each Other
