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.
