A celebration of community, of diversity, of staying cool! It's a very hot day in the city and children (and their adults) gather from all over to come together in a very special place. At its core, Our Pool is about coming together and having fun. The pool is a space everyone can come to cool off, to play with friends, and enjoy the day. The book is full of tender parent-child moments that complement the excitement of a wonderful day at the pool.
In the spirit of All Are Welcome, Our Pool celebrates the multicultural, multigenerational diversity of an entire community that communes together. Filled with onomatopoeia and phrases that you want to shout out, this is a text that begs to be read aloud; the text sings.
