Kay Chorao lives in New York City.From Booklist:
Veteran author-illustrator Chorao brings little ones poems and rhymes from around the world in this attractive offering. A poem from Poland tells of Lizzie, a “spinning top,” for whom the dancing never stops. A haiku-like poem from Korea describes a boy sweeping up peach blossoms. It ends, “Fallen flowers are flowers still; / Don’t brush them away.” That piece appears opposite a bit from The Tempest about blossoms on a bough. Many of the spreads fall under an umbrella idea, like rain (pun intended). Sometimes it’s the artwork that brings the concept together. For instance, “The Shadow Rabbit,” from Germany, shows a mother and child making shadow art; the kids on the facing page are doing the same, though their rhyme, “Ten Fingers,” is more general. Most of the text pieces are so short they can be used with very young children, who will be taken by the wordplay as well as the sunny pictures. Preschool-Grade 2. --Ilene Cooper
