Yellow Kayak Kindle Edition
You just never know what a new day will hold if you are brave enough to find out. On one quiet afternoon, a boy and his special friend’s unexpected adventure bring joy and excitement and sights never imagined. And the best part of any adventure is returning home with stories to tell and you best friend at your side.
"A gentle story of calm courage and of quiet, trusting perseverance that will comfort readers in their anxious times." -- Kirkus (Kirkus Reviews October 15, 2017)
"The team behind If I Had a Little Dream imagines a journey of ocean exploration as a boy and giraffe set off in a small wooden boat. ...Castrillon’s images convey an underlying tranquility that carries readers along with the explorers. It’s a voyage they’ll want to take again. " -- Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly November 13, 2017)
"In lilting rhymes and lush, jewel-toned illustrations, Laden and Castrillon deliver an imaginative adventure through stormy seas.... Castrillon’s beautifully surreal artwork is captivating. Each scene is full of imaginative sea creatures, crashing waves, blue-green tendrils of rain, and moonlit skies, all rendered in swirling organic shapes and lines and a dense palette of saturated tones....the artwork is so gorgeous, and the wind-down conclusion, wherein the travelers are welcomed home, might make this a nice pick for bedtime. " — Booklist (Booklist Online Dec 12, 2017)

However, my kids don’t get it. My 4-year-old said, “I like the boat and the monster friend, but what was that about?” My 7-year-old explained in 1st grade terms that there is not a storyline here. I doubt we’ll read it again.
Sometimes it seems like a children’s book was written for adults. This is one of those times. The poetic rhythm of the words was fun for me. We all loved the illustrations. But a picture book that kids can’t follow just doesn’t make it into the read again and again pile.
