Overview

On a hot summer day, a little girl finds ways to entertain herself and stay cool. She catches a butterfly, sips lemonade, jumps in a pool, and goes on a picnic. At night, she sees an owl in a tree and a frog in a pond, and hears leaves rustling. Before long, she's fast asleep, dreaming about more summer days and summer nights.

As with his earlier books featuring this spunky little girl, Wong Herbert Yee's focus is on appreciating the small but special details that define a season.

This lilting picture book stars the same winsome heroine as Yee’s previous seasonal outings, Who Likes Rain? and Tracks in the Snow. Nostalgic and old-fashioned, it envisions a place where a child can tiptoe through a meadow of daisies, observe insects, hear a mouse rustle, and spot a barn owl in a tree. The first-person narrative nicely encourages readers to discover these natural treasures along with the main character: “Buzz-buzz-buzz!/ What’s this I see?/ A black-and-yellow bumblebee!” Yee’s hazy and delicate colored pencil illustrations are gemlike (a quality enhanced by the book’s small trim size) and suffused with the warm light of summer. A dazzling yet quiet introduction to the world of nature experienced by an inquisitive toddler. Ages 2–6. (Apr.)
