There are four seasons in a year, and they’re all awesome, but only one of them gets to be summer!

Sunny days, weekends at the pool, games in the backyard, daylight until late and long, lovely holidays . . . that's summer, the best season ever.

The perfect follow up to the much-loved Why I Love Footy (Notables list, Picture Book of the Year category, CBCA 2016). An ode to a uniquely Australian experience and the joy of family and friends.

Reviews

Why I Love Summer celebrates the classic Australian summer, past and present, and the joy of family and friends. An ideal book for reading aloud with young readers, and for older children to read independently. Tom Jellett’s illustrations are a perfect foil to the text.
