A boy and girl spend the summer in Maine, exploring their island home. But weather is coming, and everyone pitches in to try and save the boats from a hurricane. ( )

Blueberries for Sal and especially One Morning in Maine were favorites for me as a child, but I'd never come across this one. The illustrations are watercolors and only recognizably McCloskey's style near the end when we see the characters at home. The illustrations are, however, still lovely. The text is dense and often flowery and abstract, but eventually I warmed to it a bit. It's about the beauty of nature on a Maine island in summertime and about the peace (and sometimes violence) and wonder of it. Not sure how much it would resonant with children (especially younger ones), but it was a pleasant read for me as an adult. ( )

This beautiful picture book follows two youth as they enjoy a summer in Maine. The story follows the children as they explore the natural world, prepare for a hurricane storm, and enjoy daily activities associated with life on the water. The book demonstrates a great appreciation for the natural world, a reverence and respect for nature and its power, the powerful bonds of friendship, and the importance of family. It encourages a sense of wonder and discovery for readers, and it also discusses the changing of the seasons, and the activities and life adjustments associated with each one.

Being a girl who has seen her way around beaches and nature of her own, I am a firm believer in having fun and wandering in the fun of your youth. This book however, has a very eloquent way of making nature and life itself bland. The illustration and coloring of the story are breathtaking, yet the words steal the glory of the book with their dry and complex nature. If I were a young child, I would not be able to keep up with the 2nd person narration. I often found myself dozing off and losing interest on reading this book all together. ( )

On an island off the coast of Maine, in Penobscott Bay, two girls and their parents find much to enjoy about the sea, the shore, and the forests. Even a hurricane-force gale is a source of awe and wonder. But when summer is over, it’s time to pack up and move back to the city.

McCloskey is probably best known for Make Way for Ducklings, but I think I like this book even more. Here the reader explores an island with two girls. We watch a summer shower approach, and get wet when it begins to sprinkle; on a foggy morning we watch the lobster fishermen going out to check their pots. Ferns unfold under the trees, and when the fog lifts we go for a sail in the bay, accompanied by dolphins who frolick next to our sailboat. We join other kids on the beach, diving into the water, building forts and sand castles. We enjoy a summer unfettered by schedules or school work, exploring the natural world.

Of the Caldecott winners I’ve read so far, this has the absolute best illustrations. They are simply beautiful – in color, detail, scope, feel. Some are bright at a summer day, others muted by “fog.” The stars sparkle in the night sky, and the waves pound the shore during a storm. I particularly loved how McClosky showed a coming rain cloud approaching across the bay, shading one island after another. Just lovely images. ( )

Out on the islands that poke their rocky shores above the waters of Penobscot Bay, you can watch the time of the world go by, from minute to minute, hour to hour, from day to day, season to season.
