Disappointed to find no fish in the park's fish pond, best friends Sophie and Miriam decide that the fish must be sleeping, so they concoct a plan to wake up the sleeping fish.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Miriam and Sophie arrive in the park at the same time, each with a box of animal crackers in her hand and with her mother pushing a baby in a stroller. While the mothers chat, the little girls check out the pond; there are no fish to be seen, but when the babies wake up hungry and begin to nurse, it gives the girls an idea: sure enough, the fish rise for ``a fox and a gorilla'' from the snack box. Then it's time to say, ``See you tomorrow.'' Cogancherry brings the warm, very simple story to life in her large double-spreads in soft pencil and watercolor. The little pond has just three Canada geese and waterlilies in bloom; with unusual authenticity, she depicts the preschoolers' conformation and movement, subtly delineating their facial expressions as they happily share an idea or activity. An attractive idyll and role model that could be used with toddler groups. (Picture book. 1-6) -- Copyright 1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- As in Rebecca's Nap (Bradbury, 1988), this team has produced a short, simple story told almost entirely in dialogue. Sophie and Miriam come to the park with their mothers and baby siblings. There they discover they both have the same snack--animal crackers. Wanting to see the gold fish in the pond, they feed them the cookies. Large uncluttered pictures filled with clarity and warmth depict this moment of self-reliance and triumph between two preschoolers. The minimal, simple text may also be enjoyed by new readers. --Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA
