KIRKUS REVIEW

Lionel and his family are back for more adventures in this latest Easy-to-Read installment. Krensky’s grasp of a child’s perspective is readily apparent in these vignettes from Lionel’s summer vacation, which is focused on some classic childhood moments: Lionel’s triumphant quest to stay awake for Fourth of July festivities; his fledgling entrepreneurship with an American icon, the lemonade stand; and the ubiquitous car trip en famille. Wry humor punctuates the stories, highlighted by Natti’s witty illustrations. Beginning readers will be engrossed by the engaging content and encouraged by the fluid text. (Picture book. 4-8)
