And Then Comes Summer
author: Tom Brenner
illustrator: Jimyung Kim
When the days stretch out like a slow yawn, and the cheerful faces of Johnny-jump-ups jump up . . . then itís 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, 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.
A joyful, sun-drenched tribute to the anticipation and adventures of the warmest season of the year.
