Acerca de


The author recalls the summers he and his brother spent at their grandparents' house near the beach.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- This book of gentle reminiscence combines past yet timeless joys into one perfect summer memory. Fifty years ago, July meant visits to Grandma and Grandpa's house near the beach. Grandpa wore knickers, croquet was the game of choice, and at night one door in the house was left unlocked "in case anybody needs to get in." There was plenty to do, and plenty not to do. The "don'ts" will be familiar to modern children--don't slouch, don't bolt your food, don't make so much noise! Similar in style to Stevenson's Higher on the Door (1987) and When I Was Nine (1986, both Greenwillow), this lovingly executed book avoids heavy nostalgia by skillfully evoking universal pleasures of the season. Soft, evocative watercolors capture various moods with minimum detail but maximum emotional impact. With a few splashes and lines of color, Stevenson reveals the pure exuberance of racing bicycles along the boardwalk. In the final pages, the narrator at last takes a ride on Mr. Harding's speedboat, which turns out to be "ten times better than I thought it would be!" Young readers will feel the same way about this book, especially if they can share it with grandparents ready with memories of their own. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elemen .
