“A vibrant and sophisticated ode to nature.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A wonderful read-aloud.”—School Library Journal (starred review)
From Caldecott Medal and Newbery Honor winner Kevin Henkes and acclaimed painter Laura Dronzek, the bestselling and award-winning creators of Winter Is Here, When Spring Comes, and In the Middle of Fall, this book about summer celebrates the sights, sounds, and smells of the season.
Bees buzz, birds sing, and children roll in the grass and feel the heat of the summer sun. With striking verbal imagery, repetition, and alliteration, Kevin Henkes introduces basic concepts of language and the summer season. Laura Dronzek's glowing paintings beautifully illustrate the wonders of summer.
In the Middle of Fall, Winter Is Here, When Spring Comes, and Summer Song make for a beautiful quartet of seasonal-themed picture books to share at home or in the classroom. Ideal for introducing the season, for story time, and for bedtime reading.
