This is a beautiful textless picture book perfect for sharing with younger children. Seemingly very simple in its premise of a little boy using his imagination to make and sail a paper boat, the depth of the wonderful illustrations will provide much discussion.

A rainy grey day is transformed by the spark of this imagination and the vivid yellow of the boy’s raingear highlights this.  When his paper boat slips away from him and he goes looking for it, another adventure awaits him.

When you have shared and talked about this experience with your readers, of course you will be keen to make your own paper boats and sail them. The delicious endpapers give a visual instruction sheet on how to fold your own boat. Have fun and happy sailing!
