How many days are left in the school year for you? Let us know—and when you do, you’ll be entered into our random drawing for a chance to win these perfect-start-to-the-summer books:
- And Then Comes Summer (Candlewick). This book sets the tone for a long, lazy, lovely summer: “When the days stretch out like a slow yawn….” Ah…..
- Mr. Postmouse Takes a Trip (Kids Can Press). Mr. Postmouse and family travel by hot-air balloon, cruise ship, and even camel, making lots of discoveries and deliveries along the way.
- A Perfect Day (Roaring Brook Press). Acclaimed author/illustrator Lane Smith has fun with each animal’s idea of a sunny, perfect afternoon.
