KIRKUS REVIEW

New and exciting possibilities can be found in everyday life if only one takes the opportunity to savor the ordinary. “Have you ever slept outside on a hot summer night?” “Held a hungry snake.” “Flown with wings. / Have you ever done that?” These poetic challenges to do something different make even sleeping in the back lawn in a sleeping bag seem like an adventure. Walking through a corn field; watching dragonflies float overhead; even swinging on a rope swing and dropping into the water below all become mysterious and beautiful. Soft watercolor-and-pen illustrations add to the whimsy of the rhythmic verses. Imaginations will soar and sleeping bags will be unrolled as young readers discover their own everyday adventures. (Picture book. 4-7)
