Paddle-to-the-Sea by Holling Clancy Holling*

-Award winner- Caldecott Honor Book
An Indian boy in the Canadian wilderness carves an Indian sitting in a canoe.  He places the canoe in the snow where the snow will melt and flow into the Great Lakes.
The following chapters follow "Paddle Person" and his journey through the Great Lakes and into the ocean.
Amazing diagrams!
*Highly recommend.
Perfect to utilize while learning about the Great Lakes.
-Borrowed from the library.
Point to discuss: use of the word "Injun".
Guided Reading Level: O (end of third grade)
Grade Level Equivalent: 4.5
I would love to read this author's other books-Minn of the Mississippi and Seabird.
