Book review: Float; 5 out of 5 stars #bookaday

Float book coverby Daniel Miyares
Wordless picture book
Interest level: K-3
5 out of 5 stars


This imaginative wordless picture book captures the creativity and fun of childhood. The end papers play a part in the story, and the book opens with visual directions on folding a paper boat. A young boy folds the morning paper into a paper boat and heads out into rainy day to play. Unfortunately, heavy rain and a paper boat aren’t the best combination, and the boy ends up back at home, drying off, warming up, and planning his next outdoor adventure. Make sure to note the back end paper, in contrast to the front.

Children will definitely want to fold their own paper boats and planes after reading this book.
