A Timeless Story by a Terrific Author
Reviewed in the United States on July 17, 2019
Robert McCloskey did some great books -- writing and illustrating them. But "One Morning in Maine" is one of our family favorites. Based on a true time when McCloskey and his family lived on Scott Island, off the coast of Maine. Their family truly lived on an island, dug for clams, rode in a small boat to the mainland and back again, and lived through all the homey things this charming family in the book. The book is drawn in a "friendly" way, with no scary characters; only the assurance of loving parents and friendly neighbors who help in time of need. Its a timeless story that children need in this day of fear and uncertainty.
