A step into summer and joy of all things from our beautiful world.

This lovely summer picture book by Liz Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Marla Frazee is one to share often. It was a Caldecott Honor of 2010 and ‘know wonder’ it won awards as it cultivates a feeling of togetherness from families to towns all across America while enjoying the wonderful resources brought from the land. Also the use of lines in this book are fantastic and the pictures bring together the young, the old, and diverse cultures in a natural harmonious way. I came across this book in my recent literacy class and I am so excited to check it out for my family and when I teach again. From the easy going poetic verse to the glorious understanding of peace and harmony, check this book out.
