KIMO'S SUMMER VACATION is for children six to ten. This second
picture book released by Island Paradise Publishing brings readers
along from their first book SURF'S UP FOR KIMO. Kimo, like the
readers, has also grown.
On the last day of
school Kimo listens to everyone's exciting plans for the summer. Lots
of kids are going to the biggest and best amusement park on the
mainland and Kimo is jealous. Then a walk in his back yard becomes an
adventure. He discovers his neighborhood can be just as much fun as
any amusement park. This delightful story also encourages kids to
experience the people, creatures, and history of Kimo's home through
illustrated page borders. The borders, along with a few hidden
pictures, are described in a back glossary. Readers might even find a
delicious dinner recipe.
