This is such a neat book based on such a great idea. We are nature lovers and think that learning from animals is not only a fun idea, but a very wise one too. We first read this story to our little girl when she was a year old and she loved looking at the bright watercolor paintings of the animals. Now that she is older, she is getting really into the story...so it looks like the book will last us through several age brackets.

Our daughter *loves* this book. I'm so grateful to have a book that emphasizes the lessons nature has for all of us, and in a subtle, "non-preachy" way. The pictures are beautiful and the message is a meaningful alternative to all the books explicitly trying to "teach" kids lessons. Our family loves all of Amy Powell's books, but this one is special because it encourages kids to keep learning long after they've stopped reading it. A great gift, too. This is a wonderful book!!!

What a wonderful idea -- teaching children higher spiritual concepts via the school of nature. Both my kids loved the colorful pictures and found the "lessons" quite interesting.

"Summer School in the City" was a hit with my young cousins (ages 1 1/2 and 4)! The artistic watercolors really caught the baby's attention while the applicable and easy to understand lessons intrigued my older cousin. Most books are limited to certain age groups, but this one transcends all!
