A collection of fun and bright summertime poems includes familiar summer themes such as "My Lemonade Stand," "Jacks," "Backyard Bubbles," and "Jump Rope Talk" and is accented with cheerful color illustrations by an award-winning artist.





Ages 4^-8. Gilchrist's bright, sturdy acrylics work well with these child-friendly poems, simple but graced with the occasional fabulous image: sunflowers as "garden kings / with chocolate eyes" or a firefly as a "Rhinestone in / a jelly jar." Some poems on walking barefoot, dragonflies and bumblebees, and selling lemonade might be more accessible to country children than to city ones, but the joys of jump rope and jacks seem to be universal. The racially diverse cast of children who inhabit these sidewalks and meadows have individual charm; some, such as the titian-haired moppet who peers from behind a sunflower, could be portraits.
