summer-wondersIn under fifty words, Raczka and Stead have captured the shimmering magic of summer  –  on beaches, in pools, in backyards, and on picnics. From youngest to oldest, everyone finds something to love about summer. Gardens, sunshine, star-gazing, and dripping ice cream cones convey the leisure and lushness of hot, carefree days. The words are well chosen and the illustrations show everyone finding a special activity that can be best done in summer. The last page has a recipe for mini ice pops that can be simply made in an ice cube tray. Hurray for summer!
