Whether you’re hitting beach, going camping, or just taking advantage of the long summer days, pour some lemonade and settle in… these are our favorite summer picture books!

Some will take you to the ocean, others out on the lake in a boat, a few will take you camping and one will even take you on a BEAR hunt!

Isn’t it nice to think that you can have so many big adventures, right in your own home? Of course, you can also pack up these books to read wherever summer takes you.

We’ll have more summertime favorites to share with you for August.
