I like that this book really incorporates the upcoming season. I like that it has the poems in two different languages so that children of different backgrounds can both enjoy the summer fun. The illustrations are fabulous and really encourage the reader to go outside.

The Earth

Written by Mahdokht Kashkouli; Persian / Farsi
Read book »

I like how this story gives a different idea of how to view the earth and how people interact with it. I think that this is a good book for summer because it would help motivate children to learn a little more about the way they view the earth. It is not necessary to know the language to enjoy the book.

I really like this story in particular for it's illustrations. I like that this book really shows how fun and interesting different animals and cultures can be.
