Summer Days and Nights by Wong Herbert Yee

A little girl explores her world on a summer day leading into night. She catches butterflies, drinks lemonade, has a picnic in the park and listens to an owl hooting outside her window. This is exactly the type of book I would have chosen for my boys when they were young. Why? Not only is it a cute book with lovely illustrations, but it rhymes, which is an important element in stories for children who are pre-readers.

Summer days, so warm and bright,
Paint my room in morning light.
As cat naps in a patch of sun,
My summer day has just begun.
