Canoe Days

Gary Paulsen (Author) Ruth Wright Paulsen (Illustrator)
Available

Description

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."
