Publisher Summary
Highlights a wide variety of weather conditions by taking a tour around the world and examining weather in different places on the same day in March.

On the same day in March...

Polar bears ride on Artic ice.

People in French cafes turn up

their faces to the sun.

Hailstones roll over Indian hillsides.

Rain makes a river in Kenya.

On the same day that it's icy cold in the Artic, it's foggy in Louisiana, sunny in Barbados, and blowing wild winds called willy-willies in Austrailia. In this poetic exploration of longitude and weather, with bright and detailed paintings of seventeen different places, Marilyn Singer and Frane Lessac show us what's happening from the poles to the equator-- all on the same day in March.
