Reviews

A real strength of the collection is its engagement of the imagination. . . . A thrilling integration of verse and image, motivating all to serious fun. --Kirkus, starred review From running through sprinklers to blowing bubbles to catching fireflies, this book has 18 short poems about active, imaginative play in summer weather. . . . An appealing book. --School Library Journal Fun for sharing and acting out many times over. --Booklist

This could be effective in an April unit celebrating both spring and National Poetry Month, and it could also give kids some much needed memories of warmth and sunshine during the winter--or even provide them with the impetus to get off the couch and get outside. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Singer captures the inherent exultations of being young and carefree in the outdoors. . . .Well worth the exercise. --Kirkus Online Pham's grainy mixed-media scenes could take place anytime in the past 50 years, emphasizing the timeless (some might say lost) art of outdoor activity.--Publishers Weekly
