The book is about summer. It is about how the author tells us what he thinks of the summer, but he tells us through different points of view. Like sometimes he describes summer as a terrible hot itchy season. But sometimes he says it a great bonding season and a great time to play and have a break from school. The main message is that everyone has a different opinion of summer and Douglas Florian's book, Summersaults, shows you that.
It takes place in Summer. Sometimes it is the night or sometimes the day. It all really depends on what the poem is about. Yes it is important to the story because you need to know if it is day or night so you can know what kind or book or poem it is.
The illustrations help me as a reader because I feel the vibe of the book and you get to see how everything would look instead of imagining it when there are no illustrations.
I would definitely recommend this book because it tells you what ways you can look at Summer. You can look at it a positive way or you can look at it in a negative way. Its your opinion.
