Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit: A Book of Changing Seasons by Il Sung Na

The illustrations in this book lift you up and take you within them.  The detail and depth of the pictures make the story very impressive.

Alfred A Knopf Books for Young Readers sent me a copy of this children's picture book for review (thank you).  It hit the stores in January, so you can pick up a copy at your local bookstore now.

Not only are the illustrations fantastic, the author's lyrical words take you from winter to spring and teach your child about how animals survive the cold.  Most pages have a little rabbit hiding somewhere in the background.  Let your child find it for you and learn the skill of seeing beyond the obvious.

This book is for ages 1-5 and I would expect it to be read over and over again.  Even little ones will enjoy the magical illustrations.

Visit your local bookstore and pick up a copy for your favorite little one - they'll love you for it.
