Watermelon Party by Jasmine Cabanaw (2014)

“Watermelon Party” is based on a real event that happened at Rocky Ridge Refuge. One Fourth of July, Janice put out a watermelon, and one by one the animals gathered around the watermelon, sharing in its juicy sweetness side by side, despite their differences in species and size. It is the perfect story of friendship, love, animal rescue, and good old summertime fun! The writing style is light and fun. The repetitive rhyming scheme will help children with their reading skills and learning action words. Reading Level: Elementary.
