Synopsis

“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.

Praise

Starred Review, The Bulletin, July 2013:
"In addition to being a mesmerizing tale in its own right, the book offers a wide range of possible uses—it’s rich with opportunities for one-on-one seek and find, whether of water or of people, and its immediacy and vividness make it a sneaky alternative for days when weather kills off an actual park visit."

The New York Times Book Review, June 2, 2013:
“Jenkins taps out the day’s rhythm in clear, unadorned prose… [with] characters as diverse as their real-life counterparts in Prospect Park.”

Starred Review, Booklist, March 15, 2013:
“A wonderfully fresh look at a timeless topic.”
