In this beautiful picturebook, illustrated by Christina Leist, a mother and her toddler are caught up in a summer rainstorm on their walk through the city. This simple story, poetically told by Kari-Lynn Winters, will be a fun bedtime—or anytime—read for toddlers and parents alike.

CM Magazine
"The very simple text, with onomatopoeic words, is great for reading aloud…Leist's fetching mixed media illustrations complement and extend the story…Share this book at storytimes, or pack it in your knapsack when you go on a neighborhood literacy walk. Highly Recommended."
Canadian Children's Book News
"Perfectly suited to very young children...Young readers will appreciate absorbing the illustrations...On My Walk will gently remind caregivers and children about the beauty in the world around them, no matter where they live!"
The Horn Book Guide
"The out-and-back journey is comfortingly portrayed. Unfussy illustrations complement the text."
The Bookmark (BCTLA)
"A delightful book for the pre-kindergarten age group...There's the wonderful sound of a frog—'frippity-frop' and the sight of a bug—'hippity-hop.' So many rhyming words for the ear of the young listener! Including rich language, easy story line and a memory challenge, what comes next? Great fun! Christina Leist's illustrations will definitely catch the attention of the young audience listening to this story. There's something unique to look for on each page."
