Paddle-To-The-Sea by Holling C Holling

jinksb, October 24, 2010

I read this as a child growing up in Michigan. The idea that a simple carved toy canoe could travel so far, and that people who encountered it along the way would help it continue its journey to its goal fascinated me. When I saw the book again, 45 years later, I was at work, stocking a new branch library with its opening day collection. Seeing Paddle-to-the-Sea, brand-new and waiting for another child to travel with it on its journey, brought back fond memories of a forgotten friend. Keep him going. Introduce Paddle-to-the-Sea to a child you know.

An excellent guide to Google. Think you know all there is to know about using this popular search engine? So did I, but I've lost track of the number of times I've said "I didn't know THAT!" while reading this book. Highly recommended for beginners and experienced searchers!
