We Love Each Other

Yusuke Yonezu. minedition (IPG, dist.), $9.95 (28p) ISBN 978-988-8240-56-2
Japanese author/illustrator Yonezu marries color, animal, and shape concepts with die-cuts and a reassuring theme of love in an expertly designed and executed board book. “Birds love each other,” begins the book, while two smiling red birds appear below on separate pages; turning the page brings them together as they create a heart shape. Two blue triangular mice and brown rectangular bears create a triangle and square on subsequent pages, among other colorful animal examples. Yonezu’s simple renderings radiate happiness and charm on every page. Up to age 3. (Nov.)
