On my third day of summer, the sunshine brought to me…

Three ruffed grouse

Two goatsbeard seeds

And a song sparrow nest for three.

Patterned on the popular carol, The Twelve Days of Summer takes readers on a joyous journey into summer, from the first discovery of three eggs in a sparrow’s nest to the day when those eggs hatch. Readers will pore over the pictures, searching for that fifth bumblebee, that tenth crow, and for the thoughtfully chosen toy that turns up on each page: a parachute with the goatsbeard seeds, a fan with the ruffed grouse… This is a story to delight and engage children and adults alike.

"The illustrations are superb...lushly beautiful and humorous at the same time."
Times Colonist - June 3, 2007
"A classic picture book in that its pictures can absolutely absorb a child while an adult reads aloud."
