Bees buzz, birds sing, and children roll in the grass and feel the heat of the summer sun. In this conclusion to the seasonal quartet that began with When Spring Comes, the author of the Caldecott Honor books Owen and Waiting introduces readers 4 to 6 to the basic concepts of language and the sights and sounds of the season, writing that, "Summer is a green song." Laura Dronzek's bright and lush acrylics beautifully illustrate the wonders of summer, from enjoying an ice cream cone to playing at the beach.
