Notes From Black Reads

Heidi Woodward Sheffield captures all the emotions, all the nooks and crannies and everything relatable about the most glorious experience of going to get ice cream. Crafted with mixed media, we follow an "ice cream kid" as he goes from excited to frustrated to blissful then dejected and back to happy — with some brain freeze mixed in the middle. This terrific emotional and observational arc makes for the perfect warm weather read-aloud.

The Ezra Jack Keats Award–winning creator of Brick by Brick brings to delicious life the anxiety and elation involved in waiting in line to get ice cream.

As far as this ice-cream-loving kid is concerned, every meal should include ice cream. In any form, in every flavor, he loves it all. But what he doesn't love is seeing other people with ice cream . . . while he's still waiting in line for his. That's when he can get his mad, "no-ice-cream-yet, waiting-in-a-long-line face"—until he finally gets his cone, and his mad face melts into something sweet. Heidi Woodward Sheffield gently explores a range of emotions as they relate to this delicious, everyday experience.
