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)
