Summer at the public pool conjures up so many wonderful and fun memories for me. This book sent me right back and pulled me in with all the magic and wonder that summer and a new friend can bring. There is so much to look at that my son and I took our time pouring over every page. Each time reading was full of newly discovered details. The art is so astounding and the story so lovely that it's become a favorite at my house.
