On My Walk, 2010
Written by Kari-Lynn Winters, published by Tradewind Books
Illustrations: Mixed Media

On their walk along the city’s waterfront, a mother and her toddler end up being caught in a summer rainstorm. A simple story—a fun bedtime read for everyone. On my Walk, On My Swim, On My Bike and On My Skis form a popular picture book series for people under 5 years old.

Leist’s layered illustrations work well with Winters’ words, turning path, pond, and beach into a lively riot of green leaves and grass…. The transition from sunny day to cloudy one is subtle, but by the time the rain really hits, the book’s pages seem wonderfully stormy and waterlogged..”
