Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

There's a watermelon growing in the corner of the patch where the fence posts meet, and Jesse is waiting for it. Waiting for it to fill up with the cool summer rain and the hot summer sun. Waiting until at last it is ripe and ready for eating. Waiting until it is ready for her family's annual Watermelon day. Full color.


Review:

"There is a pleasurable tension running through the book: Patience is a hard-won virtue. Yet Jesse is admirably resolute, even when her yearning is nearly palpable."

Kirkus, 03/01/1996

Review:

"Appelt neatly presents her simple tale, filled with the lazy rhythms of a summer day, while the dusty intensity of Gottlieb's palette captures the story's joy."

Susan S. Verner, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, June 1996
