This gorgeous photographic concept book is perfect for sharing in the home or classroom—readers will feel the summer heat on the pavement while exploring introductory concepts of seasons, weather, and sensations.
No kid can resist a hot summer day filled with delights such as drawing chalk pictures on the pavement and playing on a swing...especially if the day is capped off with two grape popsicles plus a cooling rainstorm.
"A wonderful concept book, grounded in ordinary events yet touched with magic, that will strike a familiar chord with preschool audiences while enlarging their perceptions." (Horn Book)
"Using collage, Crews translates the mental images of her own hot childhood summers into a sensorial feast for preschoolers. 'It's summer. and it's hot,' the book begins, 'Dogs pant. Hydrants are open. Women carry umbrellas for the shade.' (Booklist)
