Descrizione

Vibrant illustrations and a simple, rhythmic text are perfectly blended in this spirited homage to friendship as a little girl recounts all the things she has learned from an enchanting menagerie of animal friends: "I learned to run from my friend the horse. I learned to sing from my friends the birds. I learned to read from my friends the books. And I learned to love from a friend like you."
The bold graphic design and brightly colored illustrations that have become the trademark of Taro Gomi's work will appeal to both children and adults.

    Bruce McCormack talks about the dude he met in LA who lived in Japan for like thirty years and when Bruce McCormack asked him what he thought he was like "Beautiful country. Nice people," and that was that and it was so zen, actually shizen, expressed simply and without pretense. That's Taro Gomi. Here is a girl thanking her friends (the aminals, her teachers, her classmates) for all the things they have taught her. She is sincere (seijitsu ni) and the pictures are lovely (kawaii, of course).

    A girl shows us what she has learned and who she learned it from--her friends, the animals!The pictures in this book make great use of contrast, with enough complexity in them to keep toddlers and preschoolers engaged, without overstimulating. We see the unnamed main character's expressions on her face as she goes about her day-- kicking, running, watching the night sky. There's a lot going on in the pictures, and less in the text, which is exactly how a board book should be. The illustrations are mostly full of dark and neutral colors, so the bright pink of the main character's dress and some flowers are shockingly brigh tby comparison. Analysis aside, the kids are gonna love seeing the animals.

    A little girl tells us things she's learned from various animals, and eventually from books, teachers, other children and you. The text is simple, but meaningful. It's a very pretty book, and very well done. Perfect for the 2-4-yr-old. My 4-yr-old seems to like it because it's pretty and she likes the little girl.

    This is the first book I ever read my daughter, while we were still in the hospital. It is short but bright, touching and funny.

    I didn't like this particular picture book. Parents don't raise their kids to be feral children, after all.
    If there was a message, I didn't catch it. Someone says friendship and love. I don't see it.
    Nice watercolor illustrations.
