Hot City written by Barbara Joosse, illustrated by R. Gregory Christie (2004)
What a perfect library readaloud for the last days of school!
Mimi and Joe, brother and sister, are looking for something to do on a sizzlin' hot summer day. They help out their Mama, buy some snow cones, then escape to the cool confines of the public library. There, the two siblings get lost in stories - Mimi is a princess riding a unicorn while Joe imagines himself riding a dinosaur. They each leave the library with a book in hand, happy to have had a cool (in more ways than one!) place to go on such a hot, hot day.
