One Morning In Maine Jul 13, 2007
Great condition! I remember this childhood book being illustrated in navy blue ink. Has this been changed? I was looking forward to that. Great service. Thank you.
Wonderful story Mar 10, 2007
I had this book when I was a child and bought it for my grand-neice because I love the book. I was so happy to see that it is still in print. It is a wonderful little story and the illustrations are amazing. I highly recommend this story for all youngsters.
Family favorite!!! Dec 28, 2006
One of my daughter's favorite books, and one of my favorites to read to her. She adores it at two and I'm sure she'll still love it years from now. It has a sense of timelessness to it, and she gets a real kick out of Sal's family taking a boat to the grocery. Pure fun, a sweet, wonderful book.
Really nice story Jun 30, 2006
I bought this book to give to one of my kids as a reward for doing a great job on report card! I haven't given it to my daughter just yet but I have read the book and thought it was really great. A nice book for children in the ages of 6ish to 8ish.
My favorite McCloskey book Jun 27, 2006
The artwork is great. The story, while long and a bit dated, has broad appeal. Even if today's kids cannot relate to a "back to nature" scenario they will surely become more engaged the next time you take them to the beach or on a boat and they will be excited to lose their teeth.
This is a classic that should be in every home where children reside or visit.
