This short early concept book is stylistically bold and uses a simple premise: what do things look like from above? A hot summer day is the scene of the story: readers will be able to spot the bird’s eye view of a small town with hot yellow lawns spreading out in every direction. The story focuses upon the fun and leisure shared between two children, who play in a paddling pool in the sun. The picturebook provides a friendly snapshot of a happy time. Importantly, it is an effective text for use to inspire children to produce their own cultural artefacts. What does the school look like from above? The town? The country? The continent? With this in mind, a simple story about playing in a paddling pool becomes a way to think about the interconnected nature of places, peoples and things.
