Enjoy the outdoors
"Calmenson writes in quatrains with a humorous point of view. Thermes' brightly hued watercolors are lively and appealing, with the sky and waters in lovely shades of blue ... the story is entertaining and would serve as a good introduction to family outings. A valuable reminder to enjoy the outdoors and keep an eye out for possibilities!

A fun and important read
"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."
