About the Author

Leslie A. Davidson has always been a writer, though it wasn't until retirement that she finally found time for the stories that tapped on her consciousness throughout years of teaching and parenting. Leslie's writing celebrates the things that matter most to her: family, friendship and the natural world. In the Red Canoe is her first picture book. Leslie and her husband live in Revelstoke, British Columbia, where three young grandchildren inspire her and fill her days with joy. For more information, visit www.leslieadavidson.com. Laura Bifano grew up in the rainy Pacific Northwest of Canada, where she spent her days running around in the forest and drawing pictures. Since graduating from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2008, she divides her time between freelance work, fine art and animated shows and feature films. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. For more information, visit www.laurabifano.com. Follow her on Twitter @Bifanoland.

Reviews

"A warm story of intergenerational companionship and nature's everyday delights."--Publishers Weekly (08/29/2016)
"Quiet, reflective, and steadily paced, this reads aloud well. The rhymes are smooth...and the rhythm steady, with a nice surprise at the end...A pleasant, peaceful reminder of the wonders that can be found in the natural world, just right for bedtime."-- (07/20/2016)
"A girl and her grandfather greet the magic of nature in the bow of their canoe in this delicate and elegant tale...Bifano's full-bleed gouache illustrations are vivid but also mirror the gentleness of the text with soft colors and flowing lines...A beautiful introduction to nature that will succeed in storytimes and one-on-one readings alike."-- (08/19/2016)
"This book is perfect for sharing with young children during the late afternoon or evening when the weather is ripe for canoeing."--Canadian Children's Book News (01/06/2017)
"This would be a perfect story to read before bedtime or a quiet time with its rhythmic, soothing language…The illustration and description made me feel as if I was there with them in the canoe. This story clearly depicts Canadian lake life and would be an excellent addition to a school library and for a read-aloud."-- (10/19/2016)
