One Morning in Maine by Robert McCloskeyOMG. I love the artwork and the nature drawings in this story. The drawings are black and white with exquisite details. I also like the story. Sal, who I assume is the same Sal in the Sal and the Blueberries, wakes up excited to go to town. She discovers a tooth is loose and the excitement is vibrating in the book. My niece has lost several teeth and each one has such excitement around it. She has to show off each wiggle, each tooth, and she loves the drama of the process. She gets a dollar for her teeth, not just a wish. This story rings true after recently seeing this.
They go clam digging on the shores of Maine and then go into town for a few groceries. It looks so ideal and what a wonderful childhood. This is the 2nd book by Robert that I simply adore. I like the Maine setting. Robert is on my list and I would like to read all his books now. This is my 4th one I’ve read. There is one more, I think, on the Caldecott list to go. I want to own this little gem I am so fond of it.
The kids enjoyed this book. The niece related to Sal loosing a tooth and she gave this 4 stars. The nephew thought it was a little boring, but he liked when Sal slipped into the water looking at the seal. He laughed over that. He thought ridding in a motor boat to go to the store was pretty cool too. He gave it 3 stars.
