Description-

  • This is an enhanced ebook with a read-along function. Ducks and frogs, swallows and dragonflies, beaver lodges and lily pads—a multitude of wonders enchant the child narrator in this tender, beautifully illustrated picture book. A tribute to those fragile, wild places that still exist, In the Red Canoe celebrates the bond between grandparent and grandchild and invites nature lovers of all ages along for the ride.

About the Author-

Davidson has always been a writer, though it wasn't until retirement that she finally found time for the stories that tapped on her consciousness throughout years of teaching and parenting.

    August 29, 2016
    Davidson and Bifano make their picture book debuts with a quiet account of a girl’s day on the lake with her grandfather. The girl narrates in sturdy rhyming verse (“We don’t say much—we mostly look./ He shows me everything./ The watery world goes sliding by./ Our paddles dip and swing”), describing their run-ins with beavers, “schools of fishy fry,” ducklings with legs like motorboats, and other creatures. Bifano portrays the girl as a tomboyish type, eager to chase frogs down a “secret, muddy beach,” but also content to rest against Grandpa’s knees as swallows dart overhead. Painted in gouache, the scenes have the feeling of stills taken from a lushly rendered animated film, and Bifano pays careful attention to the changing quality of the light as day gives way to evening. For his part, Grandpa remains a silent, almost stoic presence, but Bifano’s paintings give him a kindness that’s cemented in a closing scene of him carrying the sleeping girl to their lakeside cabin beneath a starry sky. A warm story of intergenerational companionship and nature’s everyday delights. Ages 4–8.
