Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Most people would say there is nothing good about trudging to school on a rainy day. Most people would say that being carried away by the wind and dropped into the middle of a tumultuous sea is a very bad sort of situation. No, most people wouldn't like that at all. But, Sunny isn't most people. Sunny likes to look on the bright side. And when things get exceedingly bleak? Well, isn't that what friends are for?-- Publisher's description.

    Most people would complain about trudging to school on a rainy day. But not Sunny, who enjoys using her yellow umbrella . . . until the wind lifts her high into the air and out to sea. Most people would consider that awful. But not Sunny, who likes watching the waves . . . until she falls into a small boat without oars. Dreadful, right? Not for Sunny, who prefers it to swimming. And when her boat becomes stranded on rocks and her seagull companion flies away? Well, even Sunny cries a little then . . . until it returns with more birds, who lift the boat, carry it inland, and lower it beside the school. Sunny smiles and walks right in. Similar in concept to Remy Charlip's classic Fortunately, this engaging picture book is fun for reading aloud. The story's understated humor is amplified in the attractive illustrations, where Sunny's bright yellow rain gear and the white boat stand out clearly against of muted shades of green representing the sea and sky. A promising picture-book debut for this Canadian illustrator. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
