The game escalates quickly. Feet become a blur. Suddenly, the sky opens up turning the field into a muddy mess. Will the girl's soccer game be ruined?
I thought this was a fun read. Paul's incorporation of Creole words is educational as well as entertaining. The text is minimal, yet still impactful with a powerful lesson hidden within.
Jacqueline Alcantra's illustrations are simply stunning. The scenes are vibrant and bursting with life. Children will be drawn to the eye-catching images. I especially love her use of a very dark background for the rain scenes. This really makes the rain pop on the page.
This is a great read for children ages 4-8 and for anyone who likes to learn about new cultures.
