About the Book

Overview

Like the spicy sweetness of an ice-cold glass of lemonade, these bright and happy poems promise--and deliver--a shiver of recognition and refreshment. From the classic subjects of "My Lemonade Stand" and "Jacks" to the jazzy rhythms of "Jump Rope Talk" to the lyrical beauty of "Backyard Bubbles," this stunning collection from Rebecca Kai Dotlich is drenched in summer colors and pleasures. Color illustrations by award-winning artist Jan Spivey Gilchrist add an edgy charm.

Reviews

"Metaphorical descriptions of everything from fireflies to fireworks readily focus the mind's eye, Gilchrist's brightly colored, vivid acrylic illustrations marry perfectly with the poetry. A wonderful addition that will be fun to read during any season."--School Library Journal
