The Greatest Sound of Summer

Ring a ding a ling
Now the ice cream man is here
Unleash the children

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Can’t quibble with the choice of the ice cream man, but for me it’s the sound of sprinklers. We didn’t have a pool, but we loved to run through the sprinklers.

  6. I grew up in the sticks with no ice cream man, but my son is hardwired to hear him clear across the neighborhood. He chases the poor man every summer (even though we live two doors down from a drive-in with great custard). There’s just something magical about that sound!

    One of my sweetheart’s co-workers told their children when they heard the music from an ice cream truck, it meant the ice cream was all gone. I haven’t decided yet how I feel about that. πŸ™‚

    Those were the best sounds of summer growing up living in the city! My poor kids missed out because we moved into a very quiet suburb:( But lucky for them when we have to run errands in the city, yep, im one of those moms that will chase the ice cream truck if I hear those bells!!!
