Emily Jenkins pays our Park Slope store a visit to read from her summery new picture book about a day-in-the-life of a city park.
About Water in the Park:
From the first glow of sunrise reflecting off the pond, to the last people (and animals!) running home from an evening rain shower, WATER IN THE PARK (On Sale May 14, 2013 / Schwartz & Wade Books) by Emily Jenkins, illustrated by Stephanie Graegin, is a day-in-the-life of a city park—complete with dogs, pigeons and residents of all kinds!
A rhythmic text and sweet, accessible images will immerse parents, toddlers, and young children in the summer season and the community within a park. Seasoned picture book readers may notice Emily Jenkins’s classic inspirations for this book: Alvin Tresselt’s Caldecott Medal-winning White Snow, Bright Snow, illustrated by Roger Duvoisin, and Charlotte Zolotow’s The Park Book, illustrated by H. A. Rey.
