Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
The joys of summer are expressed in colorful illustrations showing people of all ages and a variety of ethnicities. The brief text consisting of one or two words per page has a rhythmic quality. A swimming pool scene with divers and swimmers is followed by kids at a day camp tossing rocks into the river—"flat rock skimmers." The next double-page spreads include majorettes and a band in a parade, a fireworks display on a beach, and a family picnic. Other summer activities featured are reading in a hammock, jumping rope, climbing trees, growing gardens, eating watermelons, playing at the beach, admiring ice cream cones, and catching fireflies. Directions for making Mini Ice Pops and a brief history of their origin appear on the last two pages. The rhythmic text and active pictures invite young readers to join in the fun and could inspire them to come up with their own lists and pictures of summer wonders. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.

PreS-Gr 3

Told in staccato rhymes, this playful book celebrates the many pleasures of summer. With phrases such as "Divers,/swimmers,/flat rock skimmers" or "Growers,/weeders,/melon eaters," the clever, spare text describes diverse warm-weather activities. Bright-hued acrylic illustrations bring the expressive verbal images to life. The paintings are festive and entertaining, depicting children climbing trees, playing at the beach, canoeing, picnicking, admiring the stars, catching fireflies, reading, and more. One colorful spread shows several families enjoying Fourth of July fireworks. In both words and pictures, this title delivers the sensory experiences of summer with pure joy. A recipe for mini ice pops and fun facts about their origins are appended. A perfect choice to share with a group or one-on-one, this book will rally children's imaginations and creativity for a spirited discussion, craft project, or writing about this special time of year. Pair it with Raczka and Stead's Who Loves the Fall? and Spring Things (both Albert Whitman, 2007) for a seasons theme.-Anne Beier, Hendrick Hudson Free Library, Montrose, NY
