Kids’ Book of the Month
Written by Rubin Pfeffer, Pictures by Mike Austin
Summer Supper is a fun and joyful story of a farm-to-fork community meal that is told entirely with words beginning with the letter “s”! It may even inspire your family to enjoy more dinners outside and soak up these summer evenings before they’re gone!
Why our WinterKids love this book:
“I like this book because they go to the farmers market! They share and they help each other… I also like that they dance and sing after dinner.”-Winter Kid, Age 4
