Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Rabbit's coat goes white in winter, and the author reflects on how other animals spend the cold months. Bears hibernate. Birds fly south. Sheep have their woolly coats to keep them warm. Turtles swim to warmer waters. Then bright colors appear once again, and all the animals know that it's spring. Rabbit's coat in the last panel has turned a reddish hue, and she wears a smile and has a newly bloomed flower by her ear. Done in ink and oils, overlaid and enhanced digitally with various shapes and layers, the art is vibrant and sports unusual colors with whimsical details. A lovely selection to share with younger children.-Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

In this offering from the acclaimed creator of A Book of Sleep (2009), a white rabbit observes the preparations that many outdoor creatures—birds, bears, squirrels, and sheep, among others—are making for winter. Each animal deals with the weather in its own way: flying or swimming away, hibernating, staying warm in its wool, gathering food, or conserving its energy. Change comes along at the very end when “the snow has melted and the trees are in bloom,” and the rabbit, with a wink and a smile, turns to brown. The short prose sentences stand out well on pages featuring beautiful, digitally touched, textured paintings, which have a range of color, pattern, depth, and style often reminiscent of batik fabric. A sophisticated, accessible, and appealing look at winter survival. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Andrew Medlar

How do animals react when the air turns cold and winter is on the way? Answers will vary depending on the type of animal. Geese fly south seeking warmer weather, while bears cozy up in dark caves, and sheep grow nice, thick woolly coats. Some animals move very fast, like the squirrels bustling about gathering extra food. Crocodiles slow way down, sinking their thick bodies deep into the mud to make it through winter.

The animals may employ varied methods of surviving the harsh winter, but they do have one thing in common: when the snow is gone and buds are reappearing on the trees, everyone knows it is spring! More importantly, all the animals created by Il Sung Na share the same lovely illustrative style. The turtles' shells are awash with color, looking like clusters of beautiful painted bowls overturned in the water. Black faces and spindly striped sheep legs poke out from coats of thick white curlicues splatted with pastel patches.

I think it's fun that the white rabbit appears on each page, but you have to hunt for him a bit. On the first page, he is large as life, his bright white winter fur luminous against the turquoise background. He watches the geese sweep overhead from a distance, nearly blending into the gray and white patterned rocks he rests on. He just barely peeks his head into the bear cave - it is his shadow that is more noticeable here.

It doesn't matter what season, the animals are always stunning. This is an incredibly lovely book - bright, beautiful and warm.

With beautiful mixed media illustrations, Il Sung Na presents a tale of changing seasons, from winter to spring. Some animals move south, some take a long sleep, some build tunnels, some stay still, some gather food and some stay for the winter snow. But, everyone comes back for the spring. This pretty picture book of the changing seasons will be much loved by children ages 3-6.

I am absolutely in love with Il Sung Na's illustrations. The rabbit is so cute, I just want to squeeze his cheeks! The layers, textures, and whimsical animals are just delightful. Na's spare text is well paced and descriptive, but really it's the illustrations that make the book. This is a great one for kindergarten teachers introducing winter to their students. I would also recommend this one to high school art teachers because it could be used to teach printing/stamping, texture, ink or watercolor painting, loads of stuff.

Verdict:
This is a beautiful book to look at and a pleasant story to read. If I had to pick an Il Sung Na book for the home library, I'd go with The Book of Sleep or The Thingamabob. Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit makes a nice additional resource for the classroom, but is a better library checkout for families.

A Book of Changing Seasons-is a beautiful book and has illustrations that are, in ways, art themselves. It's not your typical rhymer, Dr. Seuss storybook either but certainly a visual charmer! Great page stock, cover and binding! Our two year goes back time and time again to "Knuffle Bunny", "Whistle for Whilly", and "Corduroy". Still, it's a wonderful keeper for any family. A nice addition for our little one to sit and page through all on her own.

I was anticipating something clever but effective to help toddlers understand animal changes with the seasons. I was disappointed. My three year old has never asked for a re-read.

This book is so beautiful. The images are fascinating.
If it would be for the text, I would just get the board book. There is just one sentence on each page.
For the illustrations though I would get the hard cover.

This book is more so about what happens when winter arrives and then leaves again and spring is coming.
There are just those 2 seasons included.

Simple, straight-forward and a great follow along book for the preschool, pre-reader. We enjoyed the simple story and the more complex drawings but also the layout makes it easy for our little guy to identify particular words as we read.
