Water, water everywhere, to swim, to splash, to drink. One day in the life of a park, told with aquatic flair.

Young readers who love extremely visual storytelling won't be able to resist this inviting book about the uses for water in a busy city park. Swimming dogs, thirsty cats, splashing toddlers, water balloon-throwing kids, and all kinds of city-dwellers visit the park throughout the day, and in the evening, a rainstorm sends everyone hustling indoors. Rhythmic, low-key text allows the rich illustrations to shine: bustling scenes of the park swarming with people and animals contrast with quieter moments of natural beauty, and kids will delight in searching for recurring characters on each deliciously detailed page. Fans of fascinating, intricate illustrations may also enjoy picture books by Arthur Geisert and Peter Spier.

Wonderful illustrations accompany the story about the visitors who enjoy water (pond, fountains, rain, etc.) in the park.
