9780688133931: One Hot Summer Day

"An effervescent city child dances through a hot summer day until a thunderstorm brings welcome relief. Executed in collages made from color photographs, imaginatively redefined in unexpected juxtaposition....A wonderful concept book, grounded in ordinary events yet touched with magic, that will strike a familiar chord with preschool audiences while enlarging their perceptions. An auspicious debut!"--Horn Book.

From School Library Journal:

PreS?Clever, colorful photo-collage illustrations feature a cheerful African American girl in an appealing urban landscape. Her summer day activities include an unsuccessful effort to fry an egg on the sidewalk (it's not quite that hot), a brief visit to the local playground (it's definitely too hot to sit on the shiny metal swings), and the messy fun of eating two grape popsicles in a row. The first-person narrative is filled with short, declarative sentences that are convincingly childlike. Changes in the placement of the text as well as in the art keep the book interesting and fresh. Particularly effective double-page spreads include one in which "...mother tells me to play inside games." The accompanying collage is cut into jigsaw-puzzle shapes, and another features splashing raindrops in various shades of blue. A simple story of a child's everyday adventures, told in an innovative, yet accessible style that will be enjoyed by young listeners no matter what the season.?Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
