Books to Coo About: Cherry Blossoms Mean Spring!

aoki by annelore parot
how quickly the weather changed here in the city! people went from puffer jackets to flip flops and tanks in a matter of days! everything is blooming and it feels wonderful. so in honor of sakura matsuri, the japanese cherry blossom season, i want to share two very special books that landed on my desk recently.

meet yumi and aoki both are the cutest little japanese kokeshi (japanese wooden dolls) and each has a delightful book to explore. author annelore parot takes little aoki through the streets, subway and shops of tokyo. little fingers can open flaps to explore the shelves of a store or find out what's inside aoki's bento lunch.
aoki loves the smell of the sakura

cherry blossoms and koi--looks like spring!
yumi's book takes you on an adventure with her best friend as they get ready for a costume party. also full of beautiful illustrations, gatefolds, flaps and peek-a-boo die-cuts. you will be cooing and ahhing along with your little one!
