PreSchool-K-- This brightly illustrated book is most welcome. The simple text and pictures emphasize the highlights and changes in nature that take place during the season, delineating the pleasures of summer. In pastel watercolor and colored pencil scenes, happy dog families are picnicking, going to the library, taking care of gardens, and heading to the beach. Brief explanations are given for such topics as thunderstorms, pollination, and seed scattering; safety tips for thunderstorms, beaches, and heat waves are enumerated; a recipe for ice pops is included. The last page shows the children looking forward to autumn. The entire book radiates the feeling of the warm, lazy days of summer, and each well-designed page has many small details to be pored over. Filling an ever-present need for basic books on the seasons, this clear overview makes a good springboard for a discussion, which can then be supplemented by further reading, explanations, easy experiments, and demonstrations.
