PreSchool-Grade 1—This rambunctious story has an onomatopoeic rhyming text that children will love to hear again and again. Chicky chicks, buzzy bees, and kitty cats romp in the sunny warm shine and snuggle in the sleepy shine until, "Pitter, patter. Pit. Pit. Patter. Splitter, splatter." Down comes the rain, which makes them "soggy, groggy moggy." "Sunny, sunny breeze and shine. Fluff and fur and fuzz." Inspired by the art and culture of her native Zimbabwe,MacLennan dabs, swirls, and sponges bright splashes of paint on brown butcher paper. Lively spreads and the creative placement of text express energy and movement to make this a unique, eye-catching experience. This creative book is as much fun to read aloud as it is to look at.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
