Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-Gr 3-Beginning and ending with a child sleeping under a star-filled sky, protected by a canopy of trees, this beautifully patterned and paced text takes readers on a trip into the imaginative dreams of children. It starts with the question: "Have you ever slept outside on a hot summer night?" A child replies no, but he has done something different, and he continues the pattern with the question, "Have you ever done that?" The answer is always no, but there is also always something else each child has done that is equally engaging. One may have "picked up a corn snake" or "Flown with wings" or "Nursed a baby bird." The opening illustration of the first child sleeping immediately makes the connection with dreaming, and it's confirmed at the end as readers are urged to "stretch your wings in the moon's strange light" and join this flight of fancy. Hunter's watercolor-and-ink illustrations create a cozy, inviting place in which anything is possible, yet all seems grounded in the world around us. The lilting rhyming text perfectly combines things possible and improbable. Its direct address makes it a perfect read-aloud or a candidate for reader's theater. Pair this with Elinor Horwitz's When the Sky Is Like Lace (HarperCollins, 1987) for a cozy, fanciful storytime.

Format: Hardcover
"Have you ever slept outside on a hot summer night?/Everything looks different/in the moon's strange light./The trees seem to whisper/so you bravely whisper back./Outside at night./Have you ever done that?" Each beautifully poetic question is answered "I've never...", and then continues on with "but I've..." From riding in a storm tossed boat, to picking up a snake, and nursing a sick baby bird, to flying out across the river on a rope swing "...and I knew that the water/was deep and cold and black./And I still let go./Have you ever done that?" Julie Larios explores the small wonders, possibilities, and accomplishments of a preschooler's world in this lovely and evocative picture book. Her rhyming text is full of imagery and magic, and complemented by Anne Hunter's beautiful watercolor illustrations, in quiet, subdued tones that send imaginations soaring. With its soothing, lyrical cadence, Have You Ever Done That? is perfect for lulling little ones to sleep at bedtime. "When the river is deep/and the corn snakes pause,/when the wild waves call/and the wounded crow caws,/Just stretch your wings/in the moon's strange light./You can start by sleeping out on a hot summer night."

This story in rhyme explores the joy of discovering nature's simple summer pleasures as a pair of speakers compare their experiences and inquire, "Have you ever done that?" The watercolor and ink illustrations are both beautiful and mysterious. This poetic book is a tantalizing reminder that adventure can be found everywhere if one is willing to look.

What a beautiful book. So simple in its essence, but so engaging. I found myself leaning back and closing my eyes and escaping to the world were the " wind [was] at my back" and I could fly "with wings". A perfect book for little ones and for grown-ups who need to slow down!

This is one of my favorite children's books. So understated, but with a peaceful message about enjoying nature. My 3 y.o daughter loves it. the text is lyrical and spare, but manages to conjure up a very rich world you want to jump right in to. A very soothing bedtime read.

...if you live it that way. Too many people grow up timid and afraid of new experiences, new foods, new ideas... Don't let your children grow up that way. You might want to talk to them as you read about being careful and the difference between being cautious and timid, reckless and adventurous. But the take home message should be that if they'll exercise some good common sense (and ask you before doing anything dangerous), that life can be an amazing series of experiences that will be richer than anything they can watch on TV.
