Kids running through sprinklers, toddlers carrying overflowing buckets, dogs splashing in the pond--who doesn't love the park on a hot summer day?
“A wonderfully fresh look at a timeless topic,” raves Booklist
in a starred review. From the first orange glow on the water in the pond, to the last humans and animals running home from an evening rain shower, here is a day-in-the-life of a city park, and the playground within it. A rhythmic text and sweet, accessible images will immerse parents, toddlers, and young children in the summer season and the community within a park. Seasoned picture book readers may notice Emily Jenkins's classic inspirations for this book: Alvin Tresselt's Caldecott Medal-winning White Snow, Bright Snow,
illustrated by Roger Duvoisin, and Charlotte Zolotow's The Park Book,
illustrated by H. A. Rey.
