Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julie Minnich
Sam cannot wait for his birthday in two weeks. His mom said he could pick any type of party. He chose to have a pool party because his birthday is in June and the weather should perfect for a pool party—hot and sunny. Sam reads the thermometer daily to track the temperature and weather before his big birthday pool party. As the weather becomes cold, Sam has to make a tough decision about his pool party. Aboff uses a familiar childhood concern about good swimming weather to relate to reading a thermometer. Sam has to wear a jacket the Friday before his party to illustrate how cold a 50-degree temperature truly is. Rooney reinforces the temperature and weather concepts by having blowing leaves on the cold day. The back of the book has a hands-on activity, a glossary, and a resource page for additional information. This book is part of the "Read-It! Readers" series and is a green level for math.
