Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
A classic is given a colorful new look in the delightful Summer from Alice Low. Originally published in 1963, this story recalls the the small treats of this warm season, like watching fireworks and fishing. Two friends and a dog wile away the days as they play, laugh, and discover the wonders of the summer together. This reissue features vibrant, new colors sure to bring a smile to any child's face.
Children's Literature
The long, sunny and often hot days of summer offer opportunities for lots of fun. The two kids (presumably brother and sister) and their dog fill their days playing on the swings, building sand castles at the beach, playing in the yard and spraying each other with a hose. They also spend time on a farm, riding a haywagon, catching and freeing fireflies and having a great time at the fair. It is an idyllic picture, one that most city kids will not experience but may let them vicariously join in the fun. Bright, simple illustrations with good humor fill the pages of this Beginner Book. 2001, Beginner Books, $11.99 and $7.99. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    Sweetness of summer in a book!

    My kindergartener really enjoyed this book, and I loved listening to him read and laugh his way through it. Five very BIG stars for this book!

    No Child's Library Should Be Without This Book!

    This was one of my all-time favorites as a child, and I still have my much-loved, dog-eared copy thirty years later! Now, as a teacher, I read it to my students - fifth graders! - and they love it as much as I do! All children should be so fortunate as to live, if only through this book, a magical summer of sweet adventures. This book is a must-have!

    Have Summer... Anytime!

    A short and sweet rhyming story that grabs on to your arm and takes you right into summer even if it's below zero outside. Follow the adventures of two young ones with bright colorful pictures for little ones, and interesting dialogue for the older ones. A very enjoyable read in the summer or anytime! This is the kind of book a person will remember for years to come. Descriptive, interesting, and sensible this book is a good catch. I throughly enjoy reading it at my age over and over again.
