Minho, who previously spent a noisy afternoon running errands with his mother in One Afternoon (Orchard, 1994), now spends an only slightly quieter morning in Central Park with his father. They watch joggers and bicyclists, take a horse-and-buggy ride, take a carousel ride, and then head for the zoo. An idyllic day, to be sure, that’s something that becomes all too clear when Minho awakens in the morning and realizes it was all a dream. Yumi Heo’s colorful, skewed perspectives aptly convey the busy city scenes that serve as a backdrop for this story about a Korean-American father and son. (Ages 3-6)
