Foreword Review — Winter 2014
A father takes his son to the wilderness on an island off the coast of Maine, but the parent spends more time reading his guidebook than paying attention to the wildlife. In the end, it’s young Jake who teaches the value and enjoyment of nature. Gorgeously painted seals, hawks, deer, and squirrels prance across these pages, and the humorous rhyme and rhythm of the text hops playfully as well. Both a fun and important read. Ages four to eight.
