Summer: An Alphabet Acrostic

Steven Schnur, Author, Leslie Evans, Illustrator Clarion Books $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-618-02372-1
Steven Schnur adds Summer, illus. by Leslie Evans, to his list of acrostic poetry collections that already includes Autumn and Spring. Bright beach umbrellas and tiger lilies fill the linoleum-cut illustrations; they capture summer days where ""Fourth of July banners wave from/ Lampposts, front porches,/ And the village/ Grandstand as the parade/ Streams by."" The mainstays from Memorial Day to Labor Day--the beach, mosquitoes, a lighthouse--are all here. ( Mar.)
