Betty Mermelsteinabout this book: Water Play is about four friends who use their imagination for a fun day of play while swimming in a lake. It was inspired by my own childhood experiences at Klinger Lake, Michigan, and all of the children's activities are ones I participated in myself. We swam through the raft supports, played King of the Hill on the raft, gave ourselves mud shampoos from the weed bed, pretended a neighbor's boat was a pirate ship, and, yes, ignored the whistle to come in from the lake.
The story started off as a poem, so that is why it's a rhyming ebook, which can benefit children who are learning to read as they hear the same ending sounds in words.
The illustrations are done in digital 3D painting, and Nancy Troupe made them to be so animated and colorful.
I hope that children will be reminded that imagination, whether used indoors or outdoors, can be the best gateway to fun.
