Spring is Here - Board Box Set
by Taro Gomi
Age Range: Under_5
This stylish little book from Japan introduces young children to the seasons of the year and the cycle of life. Different events are shown, such as the snow melting and the animals and plants growing. It’s a simple book but with an enchanting elegance and an added depth which includes the occasional visual joke.
The whimsical simplicity of the contrasts Japanese author and illustrator Taro Gomi uses to reflect the changes in the seasons, bringing them full circle until Spring is here again, are ideal for developing a baby’s cognitive ability and encouraging the use of their imagination.
Spring is Here forms part of a boxed set of three classic books from the 1980s published by Chronicle that also includes My Friends and Bus Stops.
