Ip to the Empire State Building a well known nursery tale In this Caldecott Medal winner a day at the beach is the springboard into a wildly imaginative exploration of the mysteries of the deep and of the ualities that enable us to witness these wonders and delight in them. Flotsam is a short and beautiful picture book bound to delight both children and adults alike It is a great book for children of all ages to read on their own and to read together with their older companionsThe book is completely devoid of any dialogue which is its great advantage although a few English words on its cards they are not essential to understanding and enjoying the story This allows for Flotsam to be enjoyed by all as it is not bound by any language like classical musicThe story itself is one to which all cultures can relate it begins with a boy on the beach examining critters and crabs when a wave covers him and his tools a magnifying glass microscope and binoculars Although the sea creatures are washed away the wave brought something else an ancient looking camera with Melville Underwater Camera written on it Upon closer examination the boy discovers that there is a roll of film inside the camera and he rushes to get it developed when he receives the prints back he realizes what he has discovered and understands the purpose of the cameraThe illustrations are drawn in the horizontal format they are wider than they are tall and in beautiful watercolors The story is delightful and universal full of wonderful detail and whimsical invention how many of us have often dreamed of finding something which would be special and uniue just by chance to feel the joy of discovery The juxtaposition of imagination and reality is truly delightful and so is the uplifting mood of the book and it s message the perserverance of wonder in an never ending chainThis is a truly delightful picture book which I m very glad to have read as it made me feel happy that I also was once such a boy and in many ways still am By the time I was finished I was genuinely moved by its universal story beauty and appeal and happily recommend it to everyone A House of My Own Stories from My Life great book for children of all ages to read on their own and to read together with their older companionsThe book is completely devoid of any dialogue which is its Under Her Command (The Bosss Pet, great advantage although a few English words on its cards they are not essential to understanding and enjoying the story This allows for Flotsam to be enjoyed by all as it is not bound by any language like classical musicThe story itself is one to which all cultures can relate it begins with a boy on the beach examining critters and crabs when a wave covers him and his tools a magnifying El Gaucho Martín FierroLa vuelta de Martín Fierro glass microscope and binoculars Although the sea creatures are washed away the wave brought something else an ancient looking camera with Melville Underwater Camera written on it Upon closer examination the boy discovers that there is a roll of film inside the camera and he rushes to Fragonard Art and Eroticism get it developed when he receives the prints back he realizes what he has discovered and understands the purpose of the cameraThe illustrations are drawn in the horizontal format they are wider than they are tall and in beautiful watercolors The story is delightful and universal full of wonderful detail and whimsical invention how many of us have often dreamed of finding something which would be special and uniue just by chance to feel the joy of discovery The juxtaposition of imagination and reality is truly delightful and so is the uplifting mood of the book and it s message the perserverance of wonder in an never ending chainThis is a truly delightful picture book which I m very Mao Zedong glad to have read as it made me feel happy that I also was once such a boy and in many ways still am By the time I was finished I was The Monarchs Are Missing genuinely moved by its universal story beauty and appeal and happily recommend it to everyone
