Designed to specifically be relatable to for young readers living in subtropical Hong Kong, this is a simple yet endearing book about a conversation between mother and son discussing what it means to for spring to be here!
Young readers often read about the four seasons in popular children's literature, where there is always snow in the winter, yet this is hardly ever true for children raised in Hong Kong.
This is a beautifully illustrated book, written and illustrated by local Hong Kong artists, that captures what it means for spring to arrive in Hong Kong, from the Chinese New Year festivities, to the rolling fog that engulfs the skyscrapers during that time of year, to just ordinary details like plastic umbrella "covers" that overflow the mall garbage bins.
This is a lovely tribute to spring in the vibrant city!
