Description

Fish and herons, turtles and dragonflies, beaver lodges and lily pads—a multitude of wonders enchant both the child narrator and any other nature lovers along for the ride in this tender, beautifully illustrated picture book. Baby ducklings ride their mama’s back; an osprey rises with a silver fish clutched in her talons; a loon cries in a star-flecked night. Rhythmic, rhyming quatrains carry the story forward in clean paddle strokes of evocative imagery.

In the Red Canoe celebrates the bond between grandparent and grandchild and invites nature lovers of all ages along for the ride.

About the Authors
Leslie A. Davidson a toujours écrit, mais ce n’est qu’à la retraite qu’elle a enfin trouvé le temps de mettre sur papier les histoires qui lui trottaient dans la tête toutes ces années où elle enseignait et élevait ses enfants. Ses histoires traitent de ce qui compte le plus pour elle : la famille, l’amitié et la nature. Cet album lui a été inspiré par la passion de son mari pour le canot. Il rêvait d’aller explorer lacs et rivières aux eaux limpides avec ses petits-enfants, mais il n’a pas vécu assez longtemps pour le faire. Leslie vit à Revelstoke, en Colombie-Britannique.

Editorial Reviews

“This would be a perfect story to read before bedtime or a quiet time with its rhythmic, soothing language…The illustration and description made me feel as if I was there with them in the canoe. This story clearly depicts Canadian lake life and would be an excellent addition to a school library and for a read-aloud.”

— Resource Links

“A warm story of intergenerational companionship and nature's everyday delights.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Told in gentle rhyming text, this is a loving account…of a serene canoe trip.”

— The Horn Book Online

“A girl and her grandfather greet the magic of nature in the bow of their canoe in this delicate and elegant tale...Bifano's full-bleed gouache illustrations are vivid but also mirror the gentleness of the text with soft colors and flowing lines...A beautiful introduction to nature that will succeed in storytimes and one-on-one readings alike.”

— School Library Journal

“This book is perfect for sharing with young children during the late afternoon or evening when the weather is ripe for canoeing.”

— Canadian Children's Book News

“The two make lasting memories in this quietly satisfying portrayal of a day spent together on the lake.”

— Booklist

“Quiet, reflective, and steadily paced, this reads aloud well. The rhymes are smooth...and the rhythm steady, with a nice surprise at the end...A pleasant, peaceful reminder of the wonders that can be found in the natural world, just right for bedtime.”

— Kirkus Reviews
