Just in time for summer Kathleen M. Wainwright presents an ode to summers past. Summer in the City is Kathleen’s first book and based on her experiences as a young child growing up in and around the Philadelphia area.
Before the days of instant streaming, smart phones and extensive video game systems, children played throughout their neighborhoods. Summer was a carefree time of friends and games. Reading this book is like a walk down memory lane; a reminder of old games played, childhood memories of playing with friends and the carefree attitude that summer brought.
Illustrations by Nancy Devard depict children enjoying summer, having a good time exploring their neighborhood and making up their own fun hanging with friends.
