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."

This book about baby animals is sweet, simple, and has lots of pretty, bright colors. Great for Spring, and storytime (all ages).

This is a beautiful bedtime story about animal babies. The author takes you to many different types of animal families including those with siblings, those who live in pouches, and those with fur versus scales. But in the end, all babies need their sleep.

Na's illustrative technique is unique. He uses a variety of textures and colors which brings the animals to life. The animals are colored creatively in some cases rather than realistically. This book is short--22 pages--but that makes it perfect for young children ages 0-4 for whom I would recommend this book.

I enjoyed the book so much that I would have liked to see more pages of animals.
