Antler Bear Canoe – by Betsy Bowen Description:

Antler Bear Canoe In this companion to Gathering: A Northwoods Counting Book Betsy Bowen again captures the vibrant magic in each northwoods day through effortless prose and colorful woodcuts. While the canoe waits beneath the heavy snow and the river freezes over bears turn in for long winter naps and people spend time reading by the fire or bundled up in layers. But when spring comes its time for kayaking fishing and listening to the quiet pond sounds of the new season. All of this and more is celebrated in Bowens warm and unusual alphabet book that introduces children to the cyclical rhythms of life in our countrys northern states. Antler Bear Canoe – by Betsy Bowen
