Summer’s Vacation

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Greg Couch
Simon & Schuster, 2003

And so Summer lugs
her sprinkling can,
day after day,
as fast as she can.

And slowly, so slowly,
there’s a greenish glow.
The animals stir.
The rivers flow.

Summer’s Vacation is the final book in Lynn Plourde’s and Greg Couch’s seasonal series which began with Wild Child. The child Summer is so busy on her vacation making sand castles, picking berries, and camping out, that she forgets to do her chores, in spite of repeated warnings from her parents, Mother Earth and Father Time. Without watering, the land turns brown until Summer grabs her sprinkling can and makes things right. Then she paints a rainbow to welcome her sister Autumn, bringing the four books full circle.
