School is out and it's the perfect time to explore the magic of summer! What is summer? For so many children summer is lemonade and salty air, baseball and ice cream, fireflies and starry nights, and much, much more. Join four friends as they explore the outdoor world of summer and all its sensory pleasures. Phillis and David Gershator's evocative language and Sophie Blackall's imaginative pictures celebrate this fun-filled season.


This picture book had an extra charm to it in that the author alluded to Gertrude Stein's "rose is a rose" line from Stein's incredible little book "The World is Round".

This gave a special sort of adult weight to the child-friendly mellifluous lilt of the text.

The book is lots of fun to read aloud and the repetitive nature of it is soothing and easy to grasp for children.

But if you view it from the perspective of someone who was inspired by a larger work by an incredible writer for adults, the text suddenly becomes all the more endearing.

It was a very nice surprise indeed.

Furthermore, your kids will probably love it.

Whether she enjoyed the simple, repetitive yet evocative text or the lovely illustrations, this was the first picture book my daughter asked for again and again (and again...), beginning last summer at 1-1/2 years old. The images of baseball, crawdad creeks, fireflies and ferris wheels were fun to discuss in the middle of winter, and even more fun once the fireflies came out this June. This book has been a bedside staple all summer, so much so that by the 500th time reading it I spotted the nearly ubiquitous ladybug. There are a couple pages on which we haven't yet found it...but I'm certain it's there ;)
