Overview

On the same day in March...
Polar bears ride on Artic ice.
People in French cafes turn up
their faces to the sun.
Hailstones roll over Indian hillsides.
Rain makes a river in Kenya.

On the same day that it's icy cold in the Artic, it's foggy in Louisiana, sunny in Barbados, and blowing wild winds called willy-willies in Austrailia. In this poetic exploration of longitude and weather, with bright and detailed paintings of seventeen different places, Marilyn Singer and Frane Lessac show us what's happening from the poles to the equator— all on the same day in March.

Read an Excerpt

In Northern Kenya

The rains come,
And all in one day,
They leave the gift of a river.
Everyone, hurry!
Come drink!
Come play!
Before the sun shines
And, all in one day,
Takes the river away.
