Have you ever waited, waited, seemingly forever waited, through the end of winter and the false starts of spring, wondering if summer would ever come? During the last chilly days of winter, a little boy wants to know, "Is it summer yet?" His mother tells him about the buds on the bushes, the seeds being planted in the earth, and the blossoms on the apple trees. They find unique beauty and pleasure in the nesting squirrels, the singing swallows, and the swimming ducklings. But will summer make it? And what will they do then? Nikki McClure's lyrical text and cut-paper illustrations celebrate the changing of the seasons and encourage children to look closely at the world of nature around them. The author lives in Olympia, WA, where she says the wait for summer always seems especially damp and gray. One sunny day in March, her son asked, "Mama, is it summer yet?" This book is her response. It is a wonderful story that can be shared by parent and child.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
