In Ice Cream Summer, Sís allows readers to escape the blazing sun and count down the days until summer vacation the best way they know how—by eating delicious, delectable ice cream with an educational twist.
About Ice Cream Summer:
Three-time Caldecott Honoree, New York Times bestselling author and illustrator, and MacArthur Fellow Peter Sís is known for his exceptional ability to create picture books that are both sophisticated and accessible.
Young Joe starts to respond to a letter from his grandfather asking him to write about what he has learned over the summer. Where can he begin? He tells his grandpa how he learned to read big words like explosion (as in, mango explosion ice cream), practiced math (by counting all of the scoops on a giant ice cream cone), and studied history (like how ice cream was invented). There are countless more lessons to be learned, all revolving around his favorite icy treat. All of the vibrantly drawn ice cream images may result in a serious craving for a creamy, refreshing cone for yourself, even if it isn’t quite summertime yet.
