About the Author
Cathryn Falwell's first book, Where's Nicky?, was published in 1991, and since then many books have followed, including the popular Turtle Splash!, which Kirkus Reviews called "a lovely example of multidisciplinary bookmaking showing how science, art, and literature can all connect." She lives in Gorham, Maine.
Top Customer Reviews
The story is more of an anecdote than a plot. Ben is happy that it is the first day of summer and he isn’t going to waste a minute. He enjoys the day to the fullest and collapses happily into bed when night arrives. The rhyming text, sometimes ABAC and sometimes rhyming couplets, are well matched to the fast, fun filled pace of the child’s adventures.
There is no conflict in the story, no rising tension, no problem to solve. It is a simple romp from dawn till dusk. Not once does Ben resort to any screens for entertainment. Many of his toys and activities could be done by any child. This would be a great book to share with the child on holiday who says, “I’m bored.”
