Description
Jake's excited about going on a trip to an island, and he really, really, really wants to see a moose. But his dad insists that there are no moose on this island. But both Jake and a friendly moose would like to disagree In playful rhymes, author Stephanie Calmenson brings the reader along with Jake and his dad, as they explore the mammals, birds, insects, and sea life on and around the island. With graceful illustrations by Jennifer Thermes, Jake--and the reader--start to see the moose, a little bit at a time, but Dad's either got his nose in a book or binoculars glued to his eyes. In the end, it's Jake who shows his dad the value of putting aside the guidebook and ferry schedule to truly experience the beauty and magic of the outdoors.
