Summer in the City: A Virtual Book Tour!

The Virtual Book Tour starts tomorrow, February 19th and ends Thursday February 28! I have teamed up with 10 great TEACHERS who have agreed to host me during this TEN day tour! There are a ton of giveaways, previews of the book, my personal connections and experiences related to the book and FREEBIES FREEBIES FREEBIES!!! Are you ready?? Here are the ten VIRTUAL BLOG TOUR STOPS:


Summer in the City is a heartwarming picture book based on author Kathleen Wainwright’s childhood growing up in the city. Before there were 24-hour cartoon channels, laptop computers or the internet, what did kids do all day to occupy their time when schools were on break and the days were hot?


Double-dutch, hopscotch, hide and seek…There never seemed to be enough hours in the day for kids to play with siblings and friends, explore their surroundings, or just laugh and giggle. Children and adults can enjoy this timeless story, which captures memories of blissful childhood summers in cities everywhere.
I look forward to you following the tour! This is definitely the highlight of my year! I hope that you LOVE the book as much as I love sharing it!
