The mayor wants a community park and safe playground for the children. She enlists a group of kids to join her in asking one of the citizens to donate some of his land. When he agrees, he joins all the families and friends who set out to build swings, benches, gardens, and a fountain. There is excitement and a sense of purpose to build the park for all to enjoy. The whole town comes together to create a beautiful park and celebrate with a grand picnic and beautiful fireworks when the job is done. The narrative text builds line by line and page by page, using repetition and imagery to create a charming story for young readers. Vocabulary recognition and matching pictures to the text help readers gain confidence in both comprehension skills and predicting a sequence of events. The artwork in this book is superb. Definitely worth noting is the bird in the birdbath doing the backstroke! Also, there are birds in every spread that add to the experience. The first page has one and then every spread thereafter adds a bird! Try to find them all on each spread! Also, try and find the worm in every image. Lastly, the end sheets can be used for visual searches. Find the items in the book! A great, fun book!
