It's Summer
by Jimmy Pickering
ages 4-8 32 pages Tallfellow Press March 2003 Hardcover    

In It's Summer, constant companions Sally and Sam (the dog) frolic amongst the wonders of summer. They have a picnic, open a groovy lemonade stand, take a dip in the nearby watering hole, and harvest some of the delicious produce that they planted in Jimmy Pickeringís Itís Spring. The illustrations are rich, rounded, and iconic; they look real enough to grab right off the page. My favorite pages are dedicated to summer evenings looking at stars and fireflies. I can hear the crickets chirping their night song, feel the gentle breeze blowing across my face.

The simple, fun rhymes that dance across the pages match the illustrations well, filling the readerís mind and heart with visions of gleeful, carefree summer days.

This book makes me long for the idyllic summers of my youth that likely only exist in my imagination.
