"Summertime Book for Preschoolers that Children of the Seventies will enjoy...

If you are a child of the 70's Summertime may have seemed much simpler, slower,
like molasses running up hill.
Kids made their own fun, used their imaginations to create forts and climb trees and play outdoor games. There were no cell phones, ipads or you tube....just lots of time spent with family and friends, and creating  new adventures!

Debbie Estrem and I
are working on a picture book
 for preschoolers that transports them back to the way kids spent their summers in the 70's. We hope it will spark some imaginative ideas for the wee folks and that adults will enjoy the little stroll in time.

"It's Summertime" is the first of a four book series from Debbie Estrem, who has also authored "Have You Ever Seen a Firefly?" and "Sights at the Zoo."
