This book is about a young boy and his sister who only have one week left staying at their island home before summer ends. They decide to take an adventure because they don't want to waste a minute of their final days. They stay out all night painting things they see until the sun rises. They go through the forest and see many different animals and trees. While they are out there, they are taking pictures for a scrapbook. The book does a wonderful job describing what each animal is, what each tree is, what each fossil is, etc. It's a very informational book and teaches kids different things you'd see on an island and how many different kinds of animas, trees, and fossils there are. This would be a great book for a science class and the illustrations are great for them to look at and learn. ( )
