A Lullaby of Summer Things by author Natalie Ziarnik and illustrator Madeline Valentine

Age Range: 4 – 8 years

Publisher: Schwartz & Wade

Publication Date: May 15, 2018

With summer still upon us, My Book Eyes couldn’t resist reading this rhyming picture book.  At dusk, a dad returns home from the beach with his four children who vary in ages. Mom beckons them with a wave as they approach the porch. Many spotlights are on one sibling’s recollections although all family members and their pet dog are depicted as they engage in their nightly routines that end in bedtime.  Words are carefully chosen and are enjoyable to read. Illustrations show loving and active folks with different skin tones, hair color and textures which are often seen amongst relatives.
