Bow Wow Wiggle Waggle by Mary Newell DePalma
"A rhyming game of fetch between a little boy and his dog becomes a wild goose chase that takes the pair throughout a sequence of watercolor spreads that ultimately lead to an endearing reunion."

"From flip-flops and hide and seek to fireworks and ice-cream trucks, there is something for everyone in this bright and buoyant celebration of the summer season."

Raindrops to Rainbow by John Micklos, Jr
"Being stuck inside with gray rain clouds looming makes a young girl wish for a blue sky day, but when the weather clears up and the yellow sun shines, raindrops give way to bright, bold colors that are worth the wait."
