Of all the kids books I have, this is my LEAST favorite. It's just kinda weird, we didn't enjoy it, we don't read it anymore.

If you have ever experienced a day in the city as the title suggests, then you can relate to this fine children's book. If you have not experienced such a day, then this is the book for you.
Children will love the artful collages, intermingled with the little girl character, and the prose is enough to keep their young minds stimulated.
"One Hot Summer Day" is the stuff that makes the blistering days tolerable and entertaining.

I loved Nina Crews' collage artwork depicting the hotness of summer in the city. The images were incredibly colorful and I wanted to explore all the details in the pictures. The little girl in purple whom the author used as the subject is absolutely adodrable! Her smile just lights you up and you can just imagine all the fun she is having.
Nina lets the reader experience many emotions while reading this book! One cannot help it!
This is a delightful book for pre-schoolers and a first grader could read this with maybe a tad bit of help with some of the words.
This mother thoroughly recommends this book for your pre-schoolers!

Nina Crews' photographs combine the beautiful with the mundane to create a story to which all children can relate. We loved the contrast of the urban blacktop with the bright crisp green leaves, the little girl floating/dancing on raindrops, etc. There's always something new to discover in the photos. This is a talented new children's writer. It's evident that such talent is in her blood!

My baby is too smart for this book, and yours is too.
Great Book Nov. 3 2013
By Jonathan Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Cute, simple and visually engaging for my 2 year old son. He laughs right along with the little girl in the story. Thank you Nina Crews for showcasing fun in the city with a lead character who is african american.
Disappointed April 24 2013
By Jamie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this after finding the book in a recommended list but was really disappointed. Perhaps the book is too America-oreintated to readily translate to something accessible for a European audience (or perhaps its just depressing reading this in the middle of winter).
