About this title

Synopsis:

On a hot summer day, a little girl finds ways to entertain herself and stay cool. She catches a butterfly, sips lemonade, jumps in a pool, and goes on a picnic. At night, she sees an owl in a tree and a frog in a pond, and hears leaves rustling. Before long, she's fast asleep, dreaming about more summer days and summer nights.

As with his earlier books featuring this spunky little girl, Wong Herbert Yee's focus is on appreciating the small but special details that define a season.

Review:

..".equally perfect for a storyhour or a cozy bedtime tale that will inspire summertime dreamers." --School Library Journal

"Fans of these books will no doubt look forward to a story about fall. . ." --Horn Book Magazine

"A dazzling...introduction to the world of nature experienced by an inquisitive toddler." --Publishers Weekly

"Children who are not usually attracted to quiet picture books will find themselves first drawn in by the guessing game and then rewarded by the entire experience. Fine strokes of color softly define the shapes of characters and settings, visually expressing the many sensory images found in the verse. . . . Simple and engaging." --Booklist, starred review on Who Likes Rain

"A perfect read-aloud for preschoolers and simple enough for beginning readers. Soft, gentle illustrations in acrylics capture the child's joy and make readers almost feel the pelting rain. A lovely choice for spring storytimes." --School Library Journal on Who Likes Rain

"The easy, unforced rhymes may appeal to adult reader and child viewer alike, while the contrast between the fallen snow and the warm tones of flesh and covering sets up a delightful balancing act. . . . Tracks in the Snow lays down a trail well worth following." --The New York Times Book Review on Tracks in the Snow

"The simple rhyming text encourages chanting along; Yee's colored pencil illustrations are meticulously drawn . . . providing a quiet softness for this gentle, cozy winter tale." --The Horn Book on Tracks in the Snow

"A tender celebration of the season." --School Library Journal on Tracks in the Snow

"Readers will feel all the invigorating chill and quiet beauty of winter." --Publishers Weekly on Tracks in the Snow
