Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The bright, digitally rendered illustrations are cheerful, and the large, bold letters on white backgrounds suit the easy-reader text."—School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
What better way to cool off on a hot summer day than by taking a swim? Pearl and Brownie decide to do this very thing and begin to get ready for a day of fun. After gathering the necessary accoutrements, they begin to ease in the cool water of the pool. Almost immediately, Brownie takes a spill headfirst into the water and, as a result, decides that is enough swimming for the day. After a few minutes of sulking, Brownie shakes off his embarrassment and enjoys the day. Pearl and Brownie soon decide to dry off together by soaking in the sun. The story line is simple and is quite sweet in its presentation. The illustrations are vibrant and present a visually captivating representation of the story being told. The bright colors catch the eye while there is a nice sense of balance with the details of the drawings. The font is appropriately sized making it easy to read and for little ones to follow along.

PreS-K—It's a hot day, so Brownie and her cat, Pearl, decide to go for a dip in the little backyard pool. Wearing large sunglasses on their oversize heads, the two friends stick their toes in the water to cool off. The little girl giggles when Pearl falls in and gets drenched, but all is well as they lay on their towel to dry off. The bright, digitally rendered illustrations are cheerful, and the large, bold letters on white backgrounds suit the easy-reader text. However, this small slice-of-life is not much of a story. Purchase where the previous three books in the series are popular.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
