Imagination goes a long way when four friends play together -- even when they stay close to home -- in a fresh, enticing story for preschoolers. Summer is here, and Little Nye is making icepops to take on vacation. Nella is stuffing too much in a suitcase, and Lester offers to remove some things to lighten the load. Out go toys for beach games, flippers and masks for paddling, and more. But why won't the suitcase shut now? Good thing that rubber raft is really all they need for their journey -- and the garden hose makes a wonderful nautical spray!
