A carved Native American figurine-Paddle-to-the-Sea--makes his voyage from an Indian village through the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful illustrations and great geography. A true living textbook. ( )

A young Indian boy carves a little canoe with a figure inside and names him Paddle-to-the-Sea. Paddle's journey, in text and pictures, through the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean provides an excellent geographic and historical picture of the region.

I wasn’t sure what to think when I started this one. However, a couple of pages in, and I was hooked. Exploring the Great Lakes region with a floating toy was an amazing trip. This is definitely for older kids with the page of text and graphic on each spread. It may take a little convincing to get them to read the book, but it’s an enjoyable read with some great geography learning thrown in.

49 months - I really enjoyed reading this with my daughter. I was expecting it to be about a real person paddling the Great Lakes but this idea is much more creative. A great geography lesson and lots of other learning too. Great vocabulary about nature. It would be fantastic to have a newer version of this book with more vivid colors in the illustrations. The art style is very much Group of Seven-esque. A good story to introduce my little dual citizen to natural connection and resources the two countries share. ( )
