On a hot summer day, a little girl finds ways to entertain herself and stay cool. She tiptoes through daisies, catches a butterfly, and sips lemonade. As the day heats up, she jumps in a backyard pool, and goes on a picnic with her parents. And at night, she sees an owl in a tree and a frog in a pond, watches fireflies blink, and hears leaves rustling. Before long, she's fast asleep, dreaming about more summer days and summer nights — and the many other adventures she'll have before the weather gets cooler again.
With simple verse and soft illustrations, Wong Herbert Yee captures the joys and freedoms to be found in the summer, from being woken by gentle sun falling through a bedroom window to listening to owls and frogs at night. As with his earlier books featuring this spunky little girl, Tracks In The Snow and Who Likes Rain?, Yee's focus is on appreciating the small but special details that define a season.
