Now It Is Summer is about a young mouse who wants to know-when will it be autumn! His mother explains that autumn will come soon enough, but before then to enjoy the season they are in-summer. With rhyming text and vibrant watercolor illustrations, children will learn to look forward to what's to come in the seasons ahead, but at the same time to enjoy the season that they are in, the swimming and lemonade, and so much more! 32 pages, hardcover from Eerdmans.
As a young mouse eagerly looks forward to everything that autumn will bring friends at school, fallen leaves to play in, pumpkins to carve his mother gently encourages him to join in all the summery joys that surround him right now dancing fireflies, sunny beaches, peaches fresh from the orchard. In this delightful tale, a follow-up to her book Now It Is Winter, Eileen Spinelli reminds readers of all ages that they can be content in the moment and find happiness wherever they are. Children are sure to love Mary Newell DePalma's soft and whimsical paintings of mice celebrating summer.
