A boy visits his family in the country, and follows a path through the trees. He discovers a lake and swims in the clear water. He soaks up the sun from the boat dock, and finally goes back home to have a happy supper with his family.
There are no words in this book. No text. Just beautiful black and white art work that says everything. This is such an emotional book. The illustrations are so simple, yet powerful to bring up strong feelings. Peace and adventure and comfort and warmth. The curiosity of what could be around the next bend in the path, behind the next tree. The bright sunlight sifting through the cool of the water. I can almost hear the birds in the forest. This book is poetry.
