Description
A little boy who can't wait for summer keeps asking his mama, "Is it summer yet?" Mama says, "Not yet, little one," then points to the signs that spring is turning to summer—the softening of the earth, the nest-building of squirrels, the singing of birds—and encourages her son to savor the beauty of spring. In this follow-up to All in a Day, Nikki McClure once again uses her superb cutouts in black paper—resembling block prints—to produce expressive images of nature and the joys of family and the outdoors for prereaders.

"Once again McClure uses her signature cut-paper art to bring the particulars of a child's world close. Here that child is a boy, who asks, 'Mama, is it summer yet?' This refrain appears on pure-colored pages that face seasonal scenes: at first, bare trees, then the first show of buds, then the planting of a garden. Mama's answers always carry the hope of what's to come: 'Not yet, my little one. But the swallows are singing. Soon warmer winds will blow.' Finally, it is, 'Yes!... The honeybees are in the flowers.... The berries are juicy and sweet.' Two wonderful spreads show mother and son—finally—enjoying what they've long awaited.... The artwork is captivating, capturing both the subtle seasonal changes as well as the love and shared joy between mother and son. Just when you wonder if summer will ever come, read this and make your heart happy."—Booklist
