"There's no time like summertime!" a country child announces in It's Summertime! The distinct warmth and special energy of life on a farm shine through the pages of this beautiful book. "It's summer! I know it is! Want to know how I know? Strawberries! I went to inspect the patch, and red was peeking out from the bright green leaves. They are still white underneath, but I can't wait. They taste good anyhow," the child says. Life among the farm's animals, haymaking, thunderstorms, and pitching a tent in the backyard are summertime experiences for this child of the country.
