Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Summertime
and the livin' is easy,
Fish are jumpin',
and the cotton is high..."

Nothing captures the feelings of summer better than the much-loved song from "Porgy and Bess," "Summertime." Its majestic imagery and deep spirituality touch listeners today as they have for generations. Now, with acclaimed illustrator Mike Wimmer's lush oil paintings depicting a family's routine one summer day earlier in this century, an American classic takes on a whole new meaning. Including the score of the song, "Summertime" is both a gentle book for family sharing and a lavish gift to be treasured.

."..there's a nothin'
can harm you
With Daddy and Mama
standin' by."
