Summertime with the kids is all about play, sun, beach, and ice cream. It’s the only season of the year where I let my kids stay up way past their bedtimes, sleep in, eat more frozen treats than I’d like to admit, play in sand, water and become a sticky mess several times a week. Out goes the schedule and anything goes during our favorite sunny season.

We heart summer big time over here and what better way to celebrate than with a good book? We’ve round up our favorite summer books that shine a spotlight on what summer’s all about.

These summer themed books are great for kids age 3-7. What are your favorite children’s books about summer?
