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.
From Beautiful Feet Books:
“A little hand-carved canoe, named Paddle-to-the-Sea, is the subject of this delightful story. Carved by an Indian boy, it is placed in the headwaters of the Great Lakes to make its way to the sea.
Traveling through all the Great Lakes and eventually the St. Lawrence Seaway, readers will learn about the history, industry, geography, seasons, tides, currents, locks, inhabitants, animals and more of this fascinating region.”
