Summer Reading for Kids from Abrams Books

Abrams Books presents a wonderful way to celebrate Moms and Dads this spring and summer with these three engaging, sweet and wonderful books.

Just Like Mama by Leslea Newman and illustrated by Julia Gorton is a loving tribute to mothers with daughters.  In it the little girls models herself after her role model and mother in the most simple but heartfelt way.  I love reading it with both my girls and they love hearing it.  It always makes me smile.

MPR Rating:  Four Stars.

Because I Am Your Daddy ($15.95) by Sherry North and illustrated by Marcellus Hall is a tribute to Fathers. Perfect for this coming Father's Day, which is right around the corner.  It's contemporary, warm and all about the unconditional love that father's have for their children.  I love how fun it is and how each time we read it my oldest daughter (4 1/2) lets her imagination soar with all the different Daddy professions.  It's inspiring.

MPR Rating: Four Stars.

Mama, Is It Summer Yet?  Written and Illustrated by Nikki McClure tells the delightful tale that could just be your child's first summer read.  It is all about the seasons changing and how children can find the ways that summer is coming with each passing day.  It's a gorgeous book that also deals with family togetherness and environmental matters.  My kids love hearing about the buds appearing on the trees and the bees getting ready for summer each time we read it.
