Summer Sun Risin'
by W. Nikola-Lisa
From sunrise to sunset, an African American boy spends an activity-filled summer day helping his family on their farm. Feeding animals, mowing hay, picking vegetables, and eating freshly caught fish fill the hours. Set in Texas in the 1950s, Summer Sun Risin’ is Parenting Reading Magic Award winner W. Nikola-Lisa’s tribute to childhood, farm life, and family togetherness. Don Tate’s sun-drenched paintings depict the family’s daily activities and trace the sun as it travels across the sky.
