Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
As the sun rises to rouse them out of their patchwork-covered beds, a perfect summer day awaits two young sisters. We follow them from a morning game of catch to a picnic lunch to sticky marshmallow good night kisses. Their story is told in clean, rich, vivid language, "Pail and shovel, / Pat and bake, / Dry sand icing / On wet sand cake." Children will identify with the multitude of sensory images--the tickle of grass beneath bare feet, the sweet taste of toast and jam, and the buzzing of dragonflies and bumblebees in the garden. Grown-ups will appreciate the book as a love poem to childhood summers. The simple, vibrant rhythm of the words is enhanced by Takabayashi's lovely, child-like illustrations. 2000, Houghton Mifflin, Ages 3 to 7, $15.00. Reviewer: Emily Schuster—Children's Literature
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Brennan and Takabayashi celebrate summer in this tidy follow-up to their list of winter joys in Flannel Kisses (Houghton, 1997). In succinct verse, the book explores every sense's sampling of the season. Snippets of happy memories appear on every spread. "Pail and shovel,/Pat and bake,/Dry sand icing/On wet sand cake.-Hungry children/Slam screens./Buttered corn./Snapped beans." Indoors and out, watercolors reflect the white hot light or porch shade with equal panache. Takabayashi's primitive style is brimming with details of a happy, busy, country-style home in suburbia. Choose this title to dispel winter blahs, or for a storytime during that last week of school.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Anna Attkisson
A poetic book about the joys of warm weather. Colorful illustrations as well as kid-friendly ideas for fun in the sun make this a wonderful book to savor during the last days of summer.
