Young children see the passage of time through the seasonal changes to the world around them in this charming book, illustrated with Nikki McClure’s extraordinary cut-paper art. A little boy who can’t wait for summer keeps asking his mama, “Is it summer yet?” Mama says, “Not yet, little one,” then points to the signs that spring is turning to summer—the softening of the earth, the nest-building of squirrels, the singing of birds—and encourages her son to savor the beauty of spring.
This engaging Summer book can be used in speech therapy to focus on sequencing and describing. It is also great for targeting predicting through its beautiful illustrations. Discover more of the speech and language teaching concepts for using Mama, Is It Summer Yet? in speech therapy below:
