Ducks and frogs, swallows and dragonflies, beaver lodges and lily pads—a multitude of wonders enchant the child narrator in this tender, beautifully illustrated picture book. A tribute to those fragile, wild places that still exist, In the Red Canoe celebrates the bond between grandparent and grandchild and invites nature lovers of all ages along for the ride.
Canadian Children's Book News - January 6, 2017
"This book is perfect for sharing with young children during the late afternoon or evening when the weather is ripe for canoeing."
Publishers Weekly - August 29, 2016
"A warm story of intergenerational companionship and nature's everyday delights."
School Library Journal - August 19, 2016
"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."
Kirkus Reviews - July 20, 2016
"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."
