Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

An African-American girl has a solitary frolic with nature; according to PW , "a bucolic mood prevails" in this "simple, lively book that does verbal flips and somersaults in fresh word play." Ages 3-6.
Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K In perfect harmony of text and illustration, Carlstrom and Pinkney extol the joy of being a vigorous, curious child exploring the delights of a lovely summer day. Exuberant Anna, a pony-tailed little black girl in a bright yellow dress, frolics through luxuriant flower gardens, a rasp berry patch, and weedy wildflowery meadows; rolls down a green hillside; hops across a cool, froggy stream; stands sturdily up in a tree; crouches to examine insects under a rock; and finally falls asleep in the grass. The text, in free verse form, is melodious with internal rhymes, repetitions, and varied rhythms. Exquisite full-page illustrations in water color, gouache, and colored pencil depict a charming girl amid brilliant floral mag nificence and radiate summer warmth and beauty. The facing pages set off the verses attractively with a border of blos soms and leaves and a center portrait of an individual bloom, berry, burr, or other element from the larger illustration. Pa tricia Pearl, First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, Va.

I have loved this book since reading it to my daughter 21 years ago. The artwork is lovely & fun, and the story is written in a way that you almost feel the grass & wind and taste the berries! I'm surprised it's out of print and glad to get another copy in good condition, since my daughter has no intention of letting go of hers!

This is one of my favorites from my childhood. The illustrations are stunning and the story is whimsical. The words are simple and easy to read for young kids, but also poetic in its simplicity.

A beautiful, poetic book that every little girl should have in her library. I read it to my own daughters when they were young; now reading to my little granddaughters!
