Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Spring is here. / The snow melts. / The earth is fresh. / The grass sprouts." Taro Gomi's picture book about the change of seasons couldn't be simpler. The first spread shows a white calf against a hot-pink background. "Spring is here," it says. In the next spread "the snow melts." And indeed, the once snow-white calf is now spotted black and white! Gomi walks toddlers through harvest, more snowfall, and comes full-circle back to spring, only this time "the calf has grown." Publishers Weekly calls Spring Is Here "the perfect picture book," and now, in its latest ultra-sturdy board-book incarnation, it may last a few more seasons! (Baby to preschool) --Karin Snelson

From Publishers Weekly

"A perfect picture book," said PW about this seasonal paean graced with a simple text and cheery artwork. Ages 4-8.

This has been our baby's favorite book since she was eight months old (she's now eleven months). We had tried lots of other picture books, but she would turn away from them after only a few pages at story time. But, this one really "clicked" with her. I was heartened to see how the pages held her interest. The images are simple, elegant and happy. Like the seasons, which is the story's theme, the pictures transition from one to another magically. It is like watching a slow motion animation. This helps immensely the development of a baby's cognitive ability. We add special effects to the reading, such as blowing wind when reading "the wind blows". It helps our baby to understand the story even better. As a parent, I consider "Spring is Here" one of the best books around for babies. As a designer/artist, I consider it a work of art.

My 1-year old son LOVES this book. It's been one of his favorites since he first saw it. He wants to read it over and over, which helps to pass the time on car trips. He always laughs when the cow re-appears toward the end. Not many books hold his interest as much or get him as excited as this one!

I bought this book just for it's large print and short sentences. (ez reader). despite these two 'requisites', this is not just a baby book!

If you want to introduce your child to the 'flow' of eloquent vocabulary, this book should do it!

It is NOT a dumbed-down baby book. It is much more fun for me, as a parent, to read than any other baby book that I have met so far!

I can see why the baby's (in other reviews) prefer it!!

My six year old (learning to read) loves it, too.

Format: Board book
This is my son's (3 mos.) favorite. The pictures are simple and contrasted. Some have only the smallest detail and he will stare right at it. The cycle of life message and simplicity of life are perfect for parent and child alike. We have an extensive collection of boards and this is among the best.

By J. Jacobs VINE VOICE on April 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
Every so often I come across a children's book that makes an exceptional impression. This is one. The words are few, spare and beautiful, presented both in English and Spanish. Each page has only 3-5 words and is accompanied by a full page illustration. But each page shows a development in the arrival of spring, then the cycle through the seasons, until spring returns again. A mesmerizing, beautiful book that can be read again and again.

This book, like all others by Gomi, has gorgeous illustrations. The words are very simple- just pages showing the changing of the seasons and the animals within those changing environments. They are really eye catching. I would say that my 15 mos old daughter is not in love with this book since she is younger but she does eye it and I think she will really love it when she' just a bit older.

This is the first book my 1 year old son ever reached for on his own and ever seemed really interested in. Now we look at it every night! He loves the colorful pictures and seems really fascinated by the goings on. Personally, I find the artistic style of the illustrations totally charming and story (such as it is) very sweet and elegant. I love sharing this book with my baby.

My 16-month old daughter likes this book and I like reading it to her. The book has interesting parts that come out on later readings- we both enjoy it.
