Acclaimed husband-and-wife team Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek’s fourth and final seasonal picture book. Summer Song features stunning summery paintings and a lyrical text that work together to introduce concepts of summer. In a starred review, Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books calls Summer Song “a sensory feast.”
Bees buzz, birds sing, and children roll in the grass and feel the heat of the summer sun. With striking verbal imagery, repetition, and alliteration, Kevin Henkes introduces basic concepts of language and the summer season. Laura Dronzek’s glowing paintings beautifully illustrate the wonders of summer. This is an engaging companion to the bestselling When Spring Comes, In the Middle of Fall, and Winter Is Here, which have received ten starred reviews among them. Summer Song is ideal for story time, seasonal curriculums, and bedtime reading.
