Booklist - 04/01/2019 Completing her quartet of seasonal picture books, Rotner combines brief lines of text with beautiful color photographs celebrating summer and the pleasures it offers to children. The text flows smoothly through the pages, effortlessly linking one topic to the next: long days, hot sun, clouds, thunderstorms, rain, gardens, flowers, bees, fireflies, and so on through the season. Kids enjoy playgrounds and beaches. Sprinklers and water parks cool them down. Ducks, turtles, and frogs can be seen at ponds. Then, as shorter days and cooler nights prevail, autumn comes. One or two short sentences appear on a double-page spread, along with several photos depicting scenes from nature and a diverse crew of children. Nicely composed and lit, the photos beautifully capture aspects of the season and include some appealing sensory elements: a boy bites into a peach; a toddler plays with streams of water shooting from a fountain. Even the posed photos here have a naturalness about them that is disarming. Well suited to sharing in classrooms, this sunny picture book offers evocative scenes of summer. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
