A Lullaby of Summer Things by Ziarnik and Valentine - ADVISABLE

A Lullaby of Summer Things by Natalie Ziarnik  and Madeline Valentine.  PICTURE BOOK. Schwartz & Wade (Random House), 2018.  $18. 9781101935521


In celebration of family vacation days at the beach – with memories of the little things that made those days so special.  The dusky tinted pages add to the lullaby of evening activities as everyone prepares for bed. 

Parents who grew up with this kind of summer experience will definitely want to buy it for their children. It skillfully evokes the sounds and smells and feels of a day at the beach.  It would be a great way to talk to students about engaging all of the senses in their writing.
