Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit and The Thingamabob

Well, I'm a fan. Il Sung Na offers up two great books for spring reading.

Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit: A Book of Changing Seasons follows a little rabbit as he observes the changes around him as the season changes into winter. He watches quietly as birds take flight, bears hibernate and other animals prepare for the winter ahead. But after the winter spring returns in full bloom! This book makes a great winter read as well and actually the most of the book does focus on winter and how different animals prepare for the cold season. The illustrations are stunning, colorful,and imaginative for both these books. I love the exploration of texture and pattern added to these beautiful line drawings.

Thingamabob makes a perfect read for a rainy spring day. Follow along this time as an elephant comes across a most peculiar object and tries to figure out what it might be used for. My two thought this read was funny as the elephant experiments with how it just might best use it's new thingamabob.


  1. I think I would like Thingamabob. Reminds me of The Little Mermaid when she finds all the stuff at the bottom of the ocean - like the fork she called a Thingamabob. It looks really cute!
