About The Book

Andy and Sandy celebrate the summer in this fifth book of an easy-to-read picture book series about friendship—from Caldecott and Newbery Honoree Tomie dePaola and Emmy Award–winning writer for the Muppets Jim Lewis.

Summer is here! What shall Andy and Sandy do first? Sandy has plenty of ideas, like jumping rope, playing catch, riding bikes, and more. But when the summer sun gets too hot, Andy knows the very best way to have fun: sharing a cool glass of lemonade with his best friend!

Written in simple words and short, declarative sentences, this book is perfect for little ones just learning to read on their own.
