"Summertime and the livin' is easy, Fish are jumpin', and the cotton is high...”
Nothing captures the feelings of summer better than the much-loved song from Porgy and Bess, "Summertime." Its majestic imagery and deep spirituality touch listeners today as they have for generations. Now, with acclaimed illustrator Mike Wimmer's lush oil paintings depicting a family's routine one summer day earlier in this century, an American classic takes on a whole new meaning. Including the score of the song, Summertime is both a gentle book for family sharing and a lavish gift to be treasured.

  • Pictures as beautiful as the music
    Mike Wimmer's illustrations perfectly compliment the lyrics and tune of the ethereal lullaby. I've used the book many times to give children a visual to help them connect to the song as it is sung. I've done the same with adults. Everyone loves this book.
