Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
At first Kroll's Naomi Knows It's Springtime seems a lyrical symphony of springtime. A subtle shift in the end clues readers into the fact that Naomi is blind. Then the book demands a re-read which reveals that Naomi's knowledge is based on well-developed sensitivities to the world around her, none of them sight-based. This is the kind of book that can dramatically change perspective, with a lot of beauty along the way.
