see you next summer

Both the narrative and images in See You Next Summer evoke a lovely nostalgia that draw you into one girl's annual summer trip to the shore, as well as invite you to reflect on your own early memories of vacations taken during this sweltering mid-year season.

We enjoyed the girl's quiet observations of the sights and sounds at the beach, reveled in her new experiences and partook in her joy in making a new friend.  Not surprisingly, after reading See You Next Summer, you'll long for a few more of your own bonfires on the beach before the summer is up.

A perfect read for these ebbing summer days.  By Andrew Larsen and Todd Stewart, and published by Owl Kids.
