A Busy Summer

Summer Days and Nights by Wong Herbert Yee follows a little girl on her adventures through a Summer day and night.  This soft, rhyming story is illustrated with Prismacolors on Arches watercolor paper.  Find the illustrator's blog here.  And from there you can find the his website.
Because of it's small size, 8 1/4 by 6 1/4, it would best be used one-on-one with a child or small group. I would have trouble using it with a large group, but it would be great if we had a set and each child could hold a copy and we read it 'together.'    I admire the use of colored pencils and the attention to detail in this small treasure.
