moonEvery First Day of Summer should start with Cody. Whether communicating with ants, spouting science, or curing a case of the whim-whams, Cody's story is witty, heartwarming and wise. – Judy McDonald, author of Judy Moody and Stink

moonCheer for Cody, with her sunny disposition and penchant for optimistic similes. Frequent black-and-white illustrations show a short-haired Cody and her bespectacled, curly-haired, brown-skinned friend enjoying the joys and sadness that summer friendships bring. Secondary characters are fully fleshed, allowing for a deep, satisfying reading experience for children ready for longer books. Cody is sure to make friends with many readers, who will cross their fingers and hope for further adventures. – Kirkus

moonCody is perfectly charming and charmingly imperfect. I'm already hoping for more! – Sarah Pennypacker, author of Clementine
