A Nest in Springtime: Belle Yang

How about introducing your totz to spring, summer, counting, colors, flowers, English, and Mandarin? Author/illustrator Belle Yang delivers all of this in A Nest in Springtime and Summertime Rainbow. Two geese have babies and a family of rabbits go for a walk in summer.

With English on the right hand side and Mandarin characters on the left of the spread, seasonal stories are told. Pinyin pronunciations are provided at the conclusion of the works as well.

Belle's gouache illustrations are vibrant with movement. They read as fresh and direct in our digital age.

Have some fun with these titles with your totz. Mandarin is so beautiful!
