How Do You Know it's Summer?
by Ruth Owen
Flowers bloom and start producing seeds. Trees covered with fresh green leaves are making food for themselves. Young animals born in the spring are striking out on their own. The days are long and sunny, and kids head back outdoors after supper to play. It's summertime!

Two friends celebrate the sounds and sights of summer. Clackity-clack, clackity-clack. A skateboard flies over sidewalk squares. Whoosh pumf, whoosh pumf. Water balloons tossed through the air. Bizzle-bzzz, bizzle-bzzz. A bumblebee comes zipping by. Tzooooooooooo bang. Tzooooooooooo bang. Fireworks start for the Fourth of July! The sounds of summer sizzle and pop in this bouncing, swinging tribute to the best beats of every child's favorite season.
