And Then Comes Summer

author: Tom Brenner
illustrator: Jaime Kim

When the days stretch out like a slow yawn, and the night is full of crickets singing . . . then itís time to get ready for summer! From fireworks and ice-cream trucks, to lemonade stands and late bedtimes, to swimming in the lake and toasting marshmallows, thereís something for everyone in this bright and buoyant celebration of the sunny season. Tom Brennerís lovely, lyrical ode to summers spent outdoors will strike a chord with anyone whoís ever counted down the days until school gets out, and Jaime Kimís jubilant, nostalgia-soaked illustrations leave little doubt that summer is indeed a time unlike any other.

ďSummerís smells, sounds, rhythms, and rituals unspool luxuriantly in this tribute to the season.Ē óKirkus Reviews (starred review)
