PreS-Gr 2-Based on the familiar Christmas carol, this ditty heralds the advent of a summer that brings such wonders of nature as a sparrow's nest, garter snakes, and bumble bees. "On my first day of summer,/the sunshine brought to me/A song sparrow nest/for three." Lovely, lush spreads depict the verdant vistas of a garden brimming with life, including trees and flowers with faces. The pictures show evidence of an unseen child amid bucolic scenes. A list of facts that pertain to the plants and animals featured is appended. This melodic ode may fill a seasonal niche.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
"A classic picture book in that its pictures can absolutely absorb a child while an adult reads aloud."--Times Colonist (06/03/2007) "The illustrations are superb...lushly beautiful and humorous at the same time."-- (10/01/2007)
