Kirkus raves about ‘Spring’

The Kirkus May 2015 Newsletter  is talking about Spring, Jeannine Gerkman’s debut picture book, and they’ve got my ears tingling! What have they been saying? Page 127 declares in large print at the top of the page: “The illustrations throughout are a delight, particularly the wonderfully lifelike birds and detailed flowers“. Below on the right column is their review and a picture of the cover.

I received this good news via email from Crystal Timbeross, Client Promotions & Advertising Associate, KIRKUS REVIEWS | KIRKUS MEDIA LLC. She wrote:

I Love You, Little One by Nancy Tafuri

I Love You, Little One by Nancy Tafuri

This gorgeous board book is so soothing and comforting, it feels like a warm embrace. It tells of love between child and mother, depicted in numerous species; deer, ducks, rabbits, mice, bears, owls, (and people) dwelling in a idyllic woodland. The illustrations are so beautiful and detailed, little ones will not be able resist touching them. The fur looks truly pettable. The verses are poetic, and the loving repetition delights “forever and ever and always”.

Check it out.
