Description

Des poissons et des hérons, des tortues et des libellules, des huttes de castor et des feuilles de nénuphar... Une multitude de merveilles enchantent la jeune narratrice et tous les amoureux de la nature qui seront séduits par cet album tendre et magnifiquement illustré. Les canetons se promènent sur le dos de leur maman; un balbuzard s'élève avec un poisson argenté dans ses serres; le cri du huard s'élève dans la nuit étoilée. Ces images sont évoquées dans des quatrains épousant le rythme des coups de pagaie.
Le canot rouge parle des liens qui unissent les grands-parents et leurs petits-enfants, et invite les amoureux de la nature de tous les âges.

Ce livre audio adapté comprend des descriptions textuelles des images, y compris de la page de couverture.

 

About the Authors
Leslie A. Davidson has always been a writer, though it wasn't until she retired that she finally found time for the stories that had tapped on her consciousness throughout years of teaching and parenting. Leslie's writing celebrates the things that matter most to her—family, friendship and the natural world. In the Red Canoe was inspired by her husband's passion for quiet exploration of pristine lakes and rivers. He dreamed of sharing paddling adventures with his grandchildren but did not live long enough to realize that dream. In the Red Canoe does that for him. Leslie lives in Revelstoke, British Columbia.
