Bawbee Books: One Summer Up North

Review of One Summer Up North by John Owens

A wordless picture-book journey through the Boundary Waters, canoeing and camping with a family as they encounter the northwoods wilderness in all its spectacular beautyThis book is by John Owens and is completely made up of illustrations, without any words. For me, it was a reflection on nature, slowing down, and being present in the beautiful outdoors. The feel of reading this book is more like flipping through a photo album than reading a novel (or even a graphic novel). If you're looking for a book with only pictures that evokes a calming, relaxing feel, this could be a great read for your family!
