Description

Clackity-clack, clackity-clack. A skateboard flies over sidewalk squares.

Whoosh pumf, whoosh pumf. Water balloons tossed through the air.

Bizzle-bzzz, bizzle-bzzz. A bumblebee comes zipping by.

Tzooooooooooo bang. Tzooooooooooo bang. Fireworks start for the Fourth of July!

The sounds of summer sizzle and pop in this bouncing, swinging tribute to the best beats of every child's favorite season.
