Capture the essence of summer with kids having fun and enjoying nature’s wonders in this book filled with a National Geographic photographer’s eye-catching photos! Whether biting into a juicy peach, dropping a fishing line in a pond, or splashing at the beach, these crisp, gorgeous photos of children celebrate quintessential moments of summer. In a simple but lyrical text, Rotner documents iconic warm-weather activities as well as changes to plants, animals, and weather that occur during a temperate summer. This fourth and final book in a well-reviewed series about the four seasons takes children from the last blush of spring to the height of summer to the beginning of autumn. A glossary explaining terms such as summer solstice, nectar, and pollen is included.
