Summer Spash! Brownie and Pearl Take A Dip by Cynthia Rylant

It is a hot day. Brownie and Pearl are going to take a dip.

They round up their gear--beach ball, towel, swim suit, sunglasses, swim goggles--and put the hose in the wading pool to fill it up with fresh water.

Brownie tests the temperature with one toe. Pearl checks it out, too.
Feels nice!

Brownie wades about while Pearl perches on the side and tries to pull on her goggles.
Pearl falls in!

She's soppy! Pearl climbs out, totally bedraggled and a little miffed that Brownie is giggling so hard. Her fur and her feelings are ruffled. But at last Brownie grabs the towel to soak up some of the water and smooth her hurt feelings, and they dry out in the hot sun.

Summer has begun, in noted author Cynthia Rylant's Brownie and Pearl Take a Dip (Beach Lane Books). Artist Bryan Biggs add some humorous touches to his illustrations with a little bird, first seen through the window and then joining the two with sunhat and sunglasses and goggles. This one is good for prepping the youngest for pool outings and as an easy reading picture book for emergent readers. Share this one with Rylant's Brownie and Pearl See the Sights and Brownie and Pearl Hit the Hay.
