3 More Favorite Children’s Books for Summer
1. The Raft is such a great story, with absolutely beautiful illustrations. A young boy has to spend the summer with his “river rat” grandmother. His discovery of an abandoned raft leads to numerous adventures, providing a summer he’ll never forget. Older Brother (almost-7) and I both highly recommend this title!
2. Pictures from Our Vacation
was thoroughly enjoyed by each member of our family. The boys requested to read this one over and over. At a few spots, we all laughed out loud, heartily–even after many readings. Love the illustrations in this book, as well as the entire story line of a family’s cross-country vacation.
3. Lucy’s Summer
recounts the summer activities of the author’s real-life grandmother, who grew up in New England around the turn of the century. Classic Americana, with beautifully etched illustrations. (We first discovered Lucy in the book Lucy’s Christmas
, which we also enjoyed
