Synopsis

Boing! Splash! Sploosh! A warm pond, a good friend, and hours to play — what could make for a lovelier day?

It’s a lovely day, and Amelia Goose is off to the pond to play with her friend, Frog. They bounce and splash and play hide-and-seek in the reeds. They sit on the log and swim with the fish. What fun! Yu Rong’s bright, graphic images and playful sound words make a satisfying read-aloud for very young children — and a celebration of simple pleasures with friends.
