IN TICKLY-TOE GRASS a buttercup offers up yellow nose kisses.
The simple delights in baby’s natural world—a bird, a fish, a leaf, a snowflake, a raindrop—are celebrated in the traditional Japanese poetic form, the haiku. In just 17 syllables, a moment, a season, the elements are joyfully captured. This peaceful little board book has tabs to encourage little hands to turn the pages and adorable artwork to delight everyone!
