Spring Is Here/Llego La Primavera
by Taro Gomi
Ages 4-8 40 pages Chronicle Books May 2006 Paperback    

Taro Gomi uses a magical blend of color and artwork to illustrate the four seasons, introducing the concept of change with images that bloom with imagination, each page in contrasting colors of text, English and Spanish.

The illustrations are bright and whimsical: a newborn calf (“Spring is here; llego la primavera”); a girl in the tall grass as it waves around her (“The winds blow; sopla el viento”); snow-suited children frolic in the snow (“The children play; los ninos juegan”), each charming picture showing yet another of nature’s wonders.

Gomi has a gift for the simplicity of language and art, combining them effectively in a bilingual format that is as pleasant to look at as it is to read.
