Winston’s Wet is an adventure picture book for children, grades k-3, written by Megan Cline and illustrated by Sakshi Mangal. At first, Winston hadn’t wanted to go out -- it was so hot out there, but his mom persuaded him to give it a try. She had the perfect suggestion for having fun outdoors. She turned on the sprinkler in the garden, and Winston happily ran back and forth through the refreshingly cool water. Suddenly, it didn’t even seem all that hot out after all and, besides, there were other things going on outside, special things that made Winston gasp in wonder -- like his own personal rainbow.
Mother and son share insights about rainbows, friendship, and love in Megan Cline’s Winston’s Wet. Who says going out when it’s hot has to be awful? Winston’s wombat mom not only sets up an afternoon of fun for her son, but she actually gets involved in enjoying the coolness of the sprinkler’s shower and sharing a bit of philosophy with Winston. The love, trust, and affection they share blazes forth on every page of this charming and kid-friendly book. While a grand selection for storytime, Cline’s book is ideal for a young reader to try on their own. Mangal’s illustrations are colorful and fun and make this impromptu sprinkler party accessible to readers as well as Winston and his mom. Winston’s Wet is most highly recommended.
