Editorial Reviews

Review

...equally perfect for a storyhour or a cozy bedtime tale that will inspire summertime dreamers. (School Library Journal)

Fans of these books will no doubt look forward to a story about fall. . . (Horn Book Magazine)

A dazzling…introduction to the world of nature experienced by an inquisitive toddler. (Publishers Weekly)

Children who are not usually attracted to quiet picture books will find themselves first drawn in by the guessing game and then rewarded by the entire experience. Fine strokes of color softly define the shapes of characters and settings, visually expressing the many sensory images found in the verse. . . . Simple and engaging. (Booklist, starred review on Who Likes Rain)

A perfect read-aloud for preschoolers and simple enough for beginning readers. Soft, gentle illustrations in acrylics capture the child's joy and make readers almost feel the pelting rain. A lovely choice for spring storytimes. (School Library Journal on Who Likes Rain)

The easy, unforced rhymes may appeal to adult reader and child viewer alike, while the contrast between the fallen snow and the warm tones of flesh and covering sets up a delightful balancing act. . . . Tracks in the Snow lays down a trail well worth following. (The New York Times Book Review on Tracks in the Snow)

The simple rhyming text encourages chanting along; Yee's colored pencil illustrations are meticulously drawn . . . providing a quiet softness for this gentle, cozy winter tale. (The Horn Book on Tracks in the Snow)

A tender celebration of the season. (School Library Journal on Tracks in the Snow)

Readers will feel all the invigorating chill and quiet beauty of winter. (Publishers Weekly on Tracks in the Snow)

More About the Author

Warm sunny days are outdoor days; bike riding days, running days. Cold, wet, snowy days are indoor days; writing days, illustrating days. In Michigan, there are plenty of days for writing and illustrating. Just as well, I do have to make a living. And I can think of nothing better than writing and illustrating children's books.

Format: Hardcover
This magical book tells the story of a little girl experiencing a beautiful summer day from the moment she wakes up until the goes to sleep at night. I love the size of the book, the illustrations are wonderfully simple yet full of enough details to keep my 2 year old interested, and the story is told in gently rhyming verse. Reading this book is like experiencing a summer day as a child all over again-where the world was full of wonder and magic and things to witness and explore. I particularly like how the author includes some time outdoors in the evening-most children's books end when the sun goes down but this one continues on so the child can experience an owl, the moonlight, and shadows. I look forward to Yee's other books.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This seasonal series features an adventurous girl as she experiences all that summer has to offer from sunup to sundown. My daughter, being very adventurous in her own right, loves Summer Days and Nights. As her mother, who remembers what it was like to spend all summer outdoors instead of glued to a screen inside, I appreciate it too. The little girl of Summer Days and Nights goes hunting for butterflies, sips lemonade in the shade, plays hide-and-seek at a picnic and catches fireflies. The book is pure nostalgia for now grown adventurous kids, and a field guide for the current set. After reading, you will definitely feel the urge to head into the great wide open in search of fun.

Format: Hardcover
I love this book, and more importantly so does my 1.5-year-old son. He's been reaching for it on our little shelf by the chair at every nap and bed time. I figured it would be a little long for him, but no, he's very engaged from beginning to end. I don't know if he's old enough to follow the story line (well, it's not so much a story as a tag-along through the girl's day), but he seems to like the simple rhyming and nice illustrations. Love it.
