Mayflyby Marthe Jocelyn
Synopses & Reviews
School is over! Hurry, pack up all your summer clothes (dont forget your bathing suit!), load everything into the car, and find a spot in the backseat. Summer is about to begin.
The siblings in Marthe Jocelyns new picture book cant wait to get to the cottage. The smell of pine needles, the first swim off the dock, playing summer games, and greeting their old friend, the rowboat Mayfly, are among the summer fun that young readers will identify with.
Delightfully illustrated with Jocelyns signature collages, Mayfly captures the incomparable excitement of the beginning of summer vacation and those seemingly endless days that follow, which children (and grown-ups) look forward to all year round.
