10E2179: One Morning In Maine

One Morning In Maine from McCloskey is another of his Maine located stories (as Blueberries for Sal and Burt Dow, which is awesome btw). OMIM is a day in the life of young Sal as she looses her first tooth, and travels around town (garage, ice cream at the store), chatting with dad and the various wildlife she encounters... The drawings by the author of the rocky coast, father's sidelong glances and various characters involved will be familiar to many readers.

One of my favorite gifts for any visitor, but especially parents with wee girls, is to give a copy of this book and a can of clam chowder - to make together at the end. #fathersday #stealthisidea
