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 Arctic, it’s foggy in Louisiana, sunny in Barbados, and blowing wild winds called willy-willies in Australia. 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.
