ABOUT SUMMER COLOR:

 

A celebration of the wonder and colors of every child's favorite season--summer 


In this celebration of the outdoors, two rambunctious children take off on an adventure from their own backyard. In each new scene, they discover the wondrous details--and beautiful colors--of nature. Even when a little summer rain threatens to dampen their grand adventure, the fun continues as woodland scenes come to life in a whole new way. 


Diana Murray's spirited verse paired with Zoe Persico's charming illustrations hits a wonderful balance of sophisticated and sweet, with details that young children will immediately relate to and layered verse that will enchant readers of all ages.
