9780064435284: On the Same Day in March: A Tour of the World's Weather

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.

About the Author:

Marilyn Singer has written over fifty books for young readers, including poetry, fairy tales, mysteries, and young adult novels. Marilyn and her husband, Steve Aronson, live in Brooklyn, New York, where the weather in March is sometimes stormy and cold and sometimes warm and sunny.

Frané Lessac is an American who has traveled all over the world. She now lives in Fremantle, Australia, but always looks forward to visiting Texas with her family. To bring the Lone Star State to life with gouache paints, Frané did extensive research using a video camera, a still camera, and actual and virtual tours. She is the illustrator of more than thirty books for children, including Capital! Washington D.C. from A to Z and New York, New York! The Big Apple from A to Z, both by Laura Krauss Melmed.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

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.

On the same day in March ...
