Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young children see the passage of time through the seasonal changes to the world around them in this charming book, illustrated with Nikki McClure's extraordinary cut-paper art.

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.

Following the success of All in a Day, Nikki McClure once again uses her unique paper cutouts to showcase wonderful images of nature and the joys of family and the outdoors, creating a book that is both timeless and fresh.

Review:

"A handsome, effective piece of bookmaking that captures the glory of a day and the possibilities it holds." Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"This uplifting picture book succeeds in introducing children to the perennial promise of tomorrow through lithe language and honed imagery." Kirkus (starred review)

Synopsis:

Hello Kitty, hello seasonal fun! This sunny board book depicts our favorite star and her cast of friends enjoying all that summer has to offer: swimming, ice cream cones, and more! With sparse text and irresistible original scenic art, this title is part of the newest series of Hello Kitty collectible board books.

Synopsis:

I only want to stay in.

In my pajamas.

Inside.

In. In. In.

For a boy and his toy giraffe, today is the perfect day to stay in. Snug in his pajamas, he reads books, bakes popovers, and plays with a big wicker basketandmdash;that he transforms into a rocket ship to fly in andldquo;innerspace.andrdquo; But soon, the outdoors is too tempting to resist, and he takes his wild imagination into

nature. That is, until itandrsquo;s time to come inside again.

Illustrated with the gorgeous paper cuts for which Nikki McClure is known, In reminds us of the essential childhood pleasures found in an engaged day of imaginative play and exploration, without electronics, scheduled activities, or adults.

About the Author

Nikki McClure is a self-taught artist who has been making paper-cuts since 1996. She is the author and illustrator of Abrams' Collect Raindrops and the illustrator of All In a Day, by Cynthia Rylant. Kirkus said her "illustrations make such nebulous concepts as hope and renewal accessible to young readers," and Publishers Weekly said children will enjoy "the tenderness of McClure’s images." She lives in Olympia, Washington.

A captivating story of the questions and mysteries of childhood. A picture and storybook full of the wonders and discoveries of a young boy. One day will bring you more joy than you expect. Mama is quaint and thought provoking at the same time. Sit down with your children and pass a day in this book with them.
