Summary
A joyful, sun-drenched tribute to the anticipation and adventures of the warmest season of the year.When the days stretch out like a slow yawn, and the cheerful faces of Johnny-jump-ups jump up . . . then it's time to get ready for summer! From flip-flops and hide-and-seek to fireworks and ice-cream trucks, from lemonade stands and late bedtimes to swimming in the lake and toasting marshmallows, there's something for everyone in this bright and buoyant celebration of the sunny season. Tom Brenner's lovely, lyrical ode to summers spent outdoors will strike a chord with anyone who's ever counted down the days until school gets out, and Jaime Kim's jubilant, nostalgia-soaked illustrations leave little doubt that summer is indeed a time unlike any other.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When school is out and the sprinklers are on, when every day is luxurious like a weekend and the family hops in the car for a road trip to the lake house, when lemonade stands and ice-cream trucks pop up on every street and sleeping bags are unfurled in tents, then you know it must be summertime. Using the same gorgeous language and when/then repetitive structure he used in And Then Comes Halloween (2009) and And Then Comes Christmas (2014), Brenner has created a languid, poetic, joyful tribute to the hotter and stickier months. The language is stunning in its descriptiveness when daylight pushes back bedtimes, / and crickets crick-crick in the evening air, / and bugs as big as thumbs bang against windows and Kim's artwork is steeped in sunshine. The overall effect is a celebration of playing outdoors in front yards with bare feet on those special, cherished days that stretch out like a slow yawn. --Worthington, Becca Copyright 2017 Booklist"
