Ready for Summer is a cute board book showcasing things to do and clothes to wear in the summertime. Illustrations are made of fabric cutouts, which increase touch-and-feel appeal for young readers. However, the last page shows a child playing in the sprinkler “sans apparel”. Does anyone still let their child outside unclothed? I certainly didn’t need anyone to give my child the idea!
Ready for Summer is one of a series of four (covering Spring, Fall, and Winter as well). The set could make a nice gift for a child’s birthday.
