The two best friends, kishi and Renne spend majority of the day being upset at each other and refusing to play with one another due to the fact one of the friends bought the last blue ice pop on the ice cream truck and the other friend wasn't able to have one. Through different attempts by adults throughout the story who tried to get the girls back ta [...]

    4. Hot days make everyone grouchy.An interesting illustration style, with photographs of mixed-media collage. There are lots of layers, with tissue paper and felt and other textured things. It's a prose poem where the repetition is enough to create parallelism but not too much where it becomes annoying. The diction isn't overly simplistic and the pictures are interesting to look at. The message is good, but the story is rather uncomplicated and not very deep.Two girls are mad at each other because [...]

    5. This book is about two girls who were wasting their day being mad at each other. Then all of the sudden, they see friends jumping rope and singing, they run in and join and their troubles are forgotten as the rest of the neighborhood listens to them sing and jump. The story shows a lot about friendship and how you can sometimes be irritated with a friend but they are still there for you. As for the illustrations, I have never seen something so great made out of collage. Each picture you can see [...]

    6. read-aloud PreS-gr2The art is what drew me to this book - collage with folded tissue paper - amazing! The illustrator is the son of the famous John Steptoe who lived a short life. What I found interesting about this book is that I thought it would be about rain coming to cool things down. However, this is a story about the heat, but also about a friendship between two girls and how it is torn and mended by the not-sharing / sharing of a popsicle. I think this would work for preschool story time, [...]

    7. I did not care too much for this book. It does not reflect African-American culture at all. It is a pretty pointless story of two children who aren't friends because of a popsicle mishap. The illustrations are also very stereotypical of an African American with huge lips and noses. The one thing that did make a little sense was the underlying message of the book: that small things shouldn't ruin friendships. At the end of the book, instead of keeping a popsicle all to herself, one of the girls s [...]

When they decide to jump rope, they start talking and the problem of the last ice pop being taken comes to light. Just then, the ice cream truck is heard coming by.

Until they cannot resist anymore and join some other girls jumping rope. The ice cream man comes, they decide to split the last blue popcycle and all is well between them.

    11. This makes for a great friendship book which shows how two friends can get into a fight but once they forgive each other their friendship is still there.
