In Minnie's Summer Vacation, Minnie with some help from Toodles finds a way for Mickey, Goofy, Daisy, Pluto, Donald, and herself to all enjoy their chosen summer activities together.  The simple plot and repetition make this book a good read for beginning readers, especially during the summer when it can be easy to forget to work on/retain reading skills.  The focus on outdoor summer activities can also make it a good way to inspire some outdoor play.
