  Paddle to the Sea
  Posted by: willowleaf on Dec-06-12 12:20 PM (EST)
 

Holling Clancy Holling's lovely "Paddle to the Sea" was my favorite book as a child (it helped that we lived in Michigan at the time and I had visited all the Great Lakes on family camping trips). My siblings and I literally wore the book to shreds but I have a newer copy. It is still available in reprint,

as are Hollings other woondrously written and illustrated books "Tree in the Trail" (about a tree growing in the desert Southwest that witnesses natural and human history in that region)and "Minn of the Mississippi" which follows a turtle through her life along the river and it's delta. I have given all these books as gifts to children over the years -- they are some of the best parent-child reading available and appeal to kids of all ages as well as adults.
