A Favorite Story Jul 21, 2008
This is a favorite story of mine. Like a Pixar movie, the book is multi-layered. The book is diverse enough to be enjoyed as a lovely picture book, a story of adventure for children, and a story of life for adults.
thoughtful book with quaint illustrations Nov 20, 2004
It would be extreme to say that this is a life changing book.
It's a thoughtful book with quaint illustrations (exceedingly long bodies tiny feet, nice simple colours)and a lovely moral.
The daughter of a ferryman Clara has always hankered for the distant horizons.
First, she thought she would be satisfied when she could row the boat to the other side, like her father, but old enough she wasn't happy.
Father gave her advice on being satisfied with what she had, and taking joy in her work.
She travels on and on and eventually meets a sailor who gave her the same advice as her father.
It's an ok book, not great, not awful.
The pictures are attractive and even the story is quite nice - it's a quiet little tale, and I would suggest an audience of 6+ because if you are reading it, it's long!
Awesome Message for Kids and Adults Jul 31, 2001
I am so grateful that a friend recommended this book to me. It is a child's book with a wonderful message for us adults, too. My daughter asks me to read this book again and again, and I truly enjoy rethinking how its message is meant for my own wanderings and desires, as well. I bought several copies for gifts, too. I think it makes a particularly great graduation gift.
