Now It Is Summer is a gentle children's picturebook about the joys of summer--even if it isn't one's favorite season! A young mouse and his family enjoy summer pastimes such as dining on fresh peaches, wearing flip-flops and beach robes, blowing soap bubbles, and more. The little mouse is eagerly anticipating autumn, a time when all his favorite things come to pass--but for now his parents entreat him to relish the moment, as summer days fly by all too quickly. Warm, colorful illustrations enhance this lovely and cheerful picturebook. Also by Eerdmans Books for Young Readers is the highly recommended "Good Night, Chickie" (9780802853783, $13.99), a heartwarming easy-reader bedtime story by Emile Jadoul.
