PreS-Gr 4–In this old-fashioned story, summer evenings are a time when children play games with their friends in the neighborhood, climb trees, discover worms, find toads, and catch fireflies. Set in a suburban neighborhood, a diverse group of kids and an eclectic array of insects and other animals enjoy roaming around their neighborhood as the day comes to a close. The bold, two-page illustrations in bright colors enhance the themes of exploration and tech-free play.
VERDICT This title will bring back childhood memories of innocent play for adults and spark interest in children to go out in nature and enjoy technology-free time with friends and family.
