Ice Cream Summer
Peter Sís (Scholastic Press)
With the jingle of ice-cream trucks signaling warm weather, the time is right to celebrate everyone's favorite frozen confection with Sís, whose story is structured as a boy's letter to his grandfather. In scenes colored in shades of strawberry, pistachio, and orange sherbet, the acclaimed author and artist revels in the boy's ice-cream-addled fantasies, giving readers a crash course in the dessert's history. Delicious.
