This is a really cute and funny book -- from the humorous interactions between characters to the adorable and lively illustrations. It's short enough for young readers not to be overwhelmed, and the story and pictures are engaging enough to keep them entertained. It's also a great book for parents to read during story time.

Summer's infectious personality and spunk makes it easy to fall in love with her, and the way she portrays being a grownup is hilarious. It reminds parents that their kids are always watching and absorbing the best (or worst) of their behavior. The book has an easy pace and also shows the less serious side of parenting as Summer's mom and dad get creative in bringing out their inner kid.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
