Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Levinson ( Watch the Stars Come Out ) and Chorao ( The Baby's Bedtime Book ) are in impressive accord in this chronicle of a day in the life of a girl living in the country. Their focus is the dramatic performance nature gives from sunrise to sunset; the child's first-person account of her day is primarily acommentary on the changes occurring in the skies above her. As she rises early and looks out her window, ``The deep orange sun peeks over the edge of the hill.'' Following breakfast and a bus ride to a tiny schoolhouse, she does her lessons while clouds gather over a lake. After ``heavy rains slap the ground'' a rainbow appears, which Chorao imbues with the same glowing pastels that tint the surrounding countryside. These arresting landscapes give way to equally effective interior scenes when the girl returns to her family's snug farmhouse. Supper is served there as the girl sees the last trace of the setting sun through her window, ending this tranquil tale on a pleasingly hushed note. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- An angelic looking child enjoys a day from dawn to sunset on her family's picturesque farm and in a one-room schoolhouse. She plays with her dog, laughs with friends, and takes special note of the ever-changing sky. The language is simple but not particularly poetic. The pen-and-colored pencil pictures, framed in bands of pink and blue, are sentimental, with a lot of golden light, glowing faces, and old-fashioned country scenes. The total effect is a bland coziness that is not likely to interest most readers. --Kathleen Odean, Moses Brown School, Providence, RI
Hazel Rochman
Not much story here beyond the title. A small child wakes up, gets dressed, plays with her dog, has breakfast, rides the school bus, goes to school, and comes home again to her dog and the warmth of family and supper. The full-page framed illustrations with careful cross-hatching glow with light and color. All through the cold day, from sunrise through storm, rainbow, sunset, and dusk, the child sees the colors change. Even when she's indoors she's always looking out through the window at sky, mountain, lake, village, and field. The idyllic scenes are almost sentimental at times, but the language is energetic, and young children will recognize the excitement of an ordinary day.
