2013 Award
The Book Boat's In
( by Cynthia Cotton/ illus. Frane Lessac, Holiday House $16.95 Score: )

You may have borrowed books from the book mobiles that traveled to small towns all over the country. But did you know that in the 19th century when the Erie Canal carried people and supplies westward that book boats travelled the river roads bringing books to faraway places that had no libraries. Illustrated with a folk art look, this little story speaks to a boy's love of books and reading as well as giving young readers a glimpse into the history of libraries. 6 & up.
