Reading Resources for the Dog Days of Summer

The Dog Days of Summer are nearly upon us. They are considered the hottest, most sultry days of the year. They received their name from the Romans who marked their beginning each year when Sirius, the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major (Big Dog) rose in the east with the sun.
