What I Did on My Summer Vacation

by Bruce Lansky Illustrated by Stephen Carpenter
Another first for Bruce Lansky: the first funny poetry book about summer vacation! It will entertain kids all summer, whether they're away at camp, traveling cross country in a hybrid or staying home with a bookshelf full of good summer reading.

What I Did on My Summer Vacation contains over 40 sidesplitting poems about summer vacation that cover everything from the much-anticipated last day of school to family road trips, wacky days at summer camp, learning how to swim, dizzying roller coaster rides at amusement parks, fun-filled days at the beach, and finally, the dreaded first day of school. These hilarious poems written by Bruce Lansky, "The King of Giggle Poetry," and his all-star gang of Giggle Poets are sure to make you count the days until summer vacation begins!
