ABOUT THIS BOOK

Opening this book is like sitting down in a canoe, taking up a paddle, and gliding out into the summer beauty of a hidden lake. In this picture book that is as refreshing and inviting as a perfect canoe day, a fawn peeks out from the trees as ducklings fan out behind their mother. Butterflies pause and fish laze beneath the lily pads. Ruth Wright Paulsen’s sunlit paintings and Gary Paulsen’s poetic text capture all the peace and pleasure of a day when water and sky are one.

QUOTES

"Succinct, poetic text and rich, textured paintings convey the beauty and wonder of a quiet canoe ride on a lazy summer day." — Booklist

"Young nature buffs are sure to appreciate this ode to life in the unspoiled wilderness; creative writing classes may find this a good model for descriptive writing as well." — Booklist

"Full of sunlight and clear water, this book is for winter dreaming and summer doing." — School Library Journal
