School is over Hurry, pack up all your summer clothes (don't forget your bathing suit ), load everything into the car, and find a spot in the backseat. Summer is about to begin.The siblings in Marthe Jocelyn's new picture book can't wait to get to the cottage. The smell of pine needles, the first swim off the dock, playing summer games, and greeting their old friend, the rowboat Mayfly, are among the summer fun that young readers will identify with.Delightfully illustrated with Jocelyn's signature collages, "Mayfly" captures the incomparable excitement of the beginning of summer vacation and those seemingly endless days that follow, which children (and grown-ups) look forward to all year round.
