Watermelon Day by Kathi Appelt - Illustrations by Dale Gottlieb
Watermelon Day is the wonderfully told story of a young girl who waits all summer for the seed she plants to grow into a large, ripe, delicious watermelon. Images of long, hot summers days come to mind through exceptional story-telling and fabulous illustrations. With great anticipation, the main character anxiously awaits the momentous occasion of that first juicy bite of watermelon.
