Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—Deceptively simple lines and soft hues bring to life this picture book about how it feels to get wet. Sookocheff, illustrator of the "Buddy & Earl" series, employs acrylic, gouache, and hand-lettering techniques to immerse readers in the story of a nameless young boy who experiences myriad ways of getting wet. For example, the narrative begins with him at a swimming pool, slowly dipping his toe into the water before doing a cannonball into the deep end. "We like getting all-the-way wet," he tells readers, "but some people just get halfway wet." Each subsequent scene reveals new comparisons for children to ponder. Other similarities and differences, such as emotions, are explored using wetness as a springboard. When the young boy splashes in a puddle for fun, joy clearly visible on his face, his smile quickly turns to tears when he falls backward in the mud. While the splash, puddle, and tears are all wet, the feelings they invoke are quite different. Though few words are shared on the page, Sookocheff provides the perfect amount of space for reflection and conversation between children and adults. VERDICT An excellent selection for young storytimes and one-on-one reading moments, this is a first choice for all collections.—Rachel Zuffa, Racine Public Library, WI --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"There's gentle humor, compelling (but comfortingly minor) angst, and a loving family to keep the boy safe through his adventures. An intriguing approach to exploring a familiar natural phenomenon, this will appeal to thoughtful young listeners who may want to share their own experiences in response." ―Kirkus Reviews

"There’s something comforting about this slow, methodical laying out of possibilities. The point is not to convey knowledge or demonstrate cleverness; rather, it’s an exploration of how we come to know what we know. . . A calming book for the end of a long day." ―Publishers Weekly
