Now It Is Summer
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.
