Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this companion volume to their Nine O'Clock Lullaby, Singer and Lessac embark on a meteorological trip around the globe, pointing out the drastically different weather conditions that can occur in various places, all on the same day. From the Arctic to the Texas Panhandle, Northern Kenya and all the way down to Antarctica, readers trek across both hemispheres, checking out snow, ice, fog, clouds, sun and heat. Singer's poetic language makes the voyage a particularly intriguing one, describing African rains that "leave the gift of a river," Patagonian clouds, "white puffs" that "vanish wet and cold/ in [a boy's] fat warm hands" and, in Barbados, sunlight that "dazzles on the sand." Lessac's folk-art paintings are like stylized picture-postcards, featuring jaunty groupings of brightly clad people and distinctive backgrounds, ranging from bustling cityscapes to wide-open countryside. No matter the time of year, youngsters will be eager to take this informative tour. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-As in Nine O'Clock Lullaby (HarperCollins, 1993), Singer and Lessac circumnavigate the globe exploring similarities and differences. Here, the intrepid travelers tackle the weather. With carefully crafted, childlike illustrations and a succinct, engaging text, the weather in 17 locales that include Paris, New York City, the Nile Valley, Darjeeling, Northern Kenya, and Patagonia is touched upon. The closing refrain on each double-page spread, "On the same day in March-," is sure to encourage listeners to join in. Inhabitants are depicted engaged in activities and attire appropriate to that area in March, though the Arctic, Antarctic, and the Texas Panhandle (during a tornado) are illustrated sans humans. An author's note offers a brief explanation of the Earth's orbit and the seasons, and a map of the world indicates the places visited in the book. Classes engaged in units on weather or world geography will find this book most interesting. Others will enjoy the repetition, the detailed illustrations, and the tiny taste of faraway places. A useful and engaging addition.

More About the Author

Marilyn Singer was born in the Bronx (New York City) on October 3, 1948 and lived most of her early life in N. Massapequa (Long Island), NY. She attended Queens College, City University of New York, and for her junior year, Reading University, England. She holds a B.A. in English from Queens and an M.A. in Communications from New York University.

In 1974, after teaching English in New York City high schools for several years, she began to write - initially film notes, catalogues, teacher's guides, and film strips. Then, one day, when she was sitting in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, she penned a story featuring talking insect characters she'd made up when she was eight. Encouraged by the responses she got, she wrote more stories, and in 1976, her first book, The Dog Who Insisted He Wasn't, was published by E.P.Dutton & Co.

Since then, Marilyn has published over eighty books for children and young adults. Her genres are many and varied, including realistic novels, fantasies, non-fiction, fairy tales, picture books, mysteries and poetry. She likes writing many different kinds of books because it's challenging and it keeps her from getting bored.

Marilyn currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband Steve; their standard poodle Oggi, seen in the home page photo; a cat named August ; two collared doves named Jubilee and Holiday; and a starling that says, "Hi. How are you? Sweet Birdie. Okay!" Her interests include ballroom/Latin dancing, dog training, reading, hiking, bird-watching, gardening, playing computer adventure games, and going to the movies and the theatre. She's also a major Star Trek fan.

Marilyn is the former host of the AOL Children's Writers Chat and currently co-hosts the Poetry Blast at various conferences. Visit her web site: www.marilynsinger.net.

Format: Library Binding
As teacher education student, I have been on the lookout for quality children's literature. On the Same Day in March is one of the best books I have found for integrating different subjects. Lessons in Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies nearly write themselves as Singer uses a rich vocabulary to describe different types of weather, agriculture, geography and cultures all over the world! Although the book by itself lacks some of the "entertainment value" very young children demand, it is excellent for 2nd and 3rd graders.

This is a good book to cover geographical effects of seasons with young children but could have been much better had the author chosen a day in winter/summer rather than spring/fall. Also, some of the slang to specific regions (eg. willy-willies in Australian section) should have been defined. Overall though, it was a useful education book and the kids enjoyed the perky text and lively illustrations.

This works well with the mid-grade school kids as they have some concept of the world. Gives them something to think about.
