Spring Is Here

by Taro Gomi

A winsome calf provides the backdrop--literally--for this charming story. With each turn of the page, the young animal is imaginatively transformed to reflect some activity of the four seasons: snow melting, seedlings springing up, harvest, all the way to the snow melting again and revealing that--the calf has grown. The story line follows the cycle of the seasons from one spring to the next, and its spare, fluid text--wedded to the vigorous graphics--vividly conveys the underlying themes of renewal and growth. The colors are joyful and fresh, and the artist's playful approach to perspective makes this a lovely picture book.

Spring Is Here/Llego La Primavera

by Taro Gomi

Un ternero bonito proporciona el fondo - literalmente - para este cuento encantador. Con cada doblada de pàgina, el animal joven se transforme imaginativamente para reflejar un cambio de las cuatro temporadas: nieve derritiendose, semillas brotando, la cosecha, regresando a la nieve derritiendose de nuevo, y revelando que el ternero ha crecido. El cuento sigue el ciclo de las temporadas de una primavera a la proxima, y su texto fluido y minimo - en combinacion con las ilustraciones vigorosos - trasmite vividamente los temas subyacentes de la renovación y el crecimiento. Los colores son alegres y juguetónes, y el enfoque lucido del artista con la perspectiva resulta en un libro lindisimo.
