The Book Boat's In

Illustrated by: Frané Lessac
Age Level: 3-6
Jesse wants a book from the floating library/bookstore that visits his town. Though he has worked and saved money, Jesse wonders if it will be sufficient. Art evokes the story's 19th century setting, inspired by an article about early barges from the author's hometown.
