Synopsis: One hot summer afternoon, Ali entertains herself and her neighbors by drawing with chalk on the sidewalk. When Mrs. Frye wiggles her toes in the little lake Ali has drawn, everyone takes notice. Soon Ira is shaded by the beach umbrella Ali draws. Everyone is delighted by a cooling summer downpour, except Ali, whose drawings wash away. Ali's neighbors don't forget how her drawings helped them beat the heat--she's their hero and cause for celebration! Full color.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 2?As her neighbors relax outside their apartment building, Ali helps them beat the intense summer heat by drawing refreshing scenes in chalk: grass and flowers, a lake, a beach umbrella, the North Wind, a polar bear, and even a snow storm. Her sidewalk pictures create such pleasure that at first no one notices the rain. Ali's creations are washed away, but her friends hail her as a heroine. The text, which exudes an air of coziness as friendly as the building's multiethnic inhabitants, comes full circle with Ali drawing once again. This time she's indoors, and her subject is the sun. Poydar's cartoon illustrations, executed in watercolor, oil pastels, and colored pencils, depict several generations. The stoop and sidewalk, awash in shades of brown that suggest desert heat, are transformed into cool blues once the downpour begins. The neighbors move from lethargic stillness to whimsical play to joyful splashing in the rain. Pair this book with Stephanie Calmenson's Hotter Than a Hot Dog! (Little, 1994) for a refreshing story hour on a hot day.?Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community-Technical College, CT
