Summer Is Here


Author: Renée Watson

New York Times bestselling creators Renée Watson and Bea Jackson offer an ode to a perfect summer day, from sunrise to sunset.

Summer is here! / No dark clouds in the sky,
it's a perfect day for play. / What joy will summer bring me today?

Summer is finally here, and she's bringing the most perfect day! From sun-up to sun-down, there's so much to do. With summer comes fresh fruit, sweet and tangy, jump ropes for leaping and dancing, and friends at the pool swimming and floating. Summer brings family cookouts under shady trees, gardens overflowing, and the familiar song of the ice cream truck. This beautiful ode to all the season's sensations follows one girl's perfect day in an exploration of joy, family, friendship, sunshine, and wonder.

Renée Watson celebrates iconic childhood joys in this love letter to summer featuring bright, sun-drenched art from Bea Jackson.
