Our Favorite Children's Books...

One of our favorite children's books is Island Boy by Barbara Cooney. We read to Zach countless times...

About Island Boy: The coming-of-age tale of a 19th-century boy, Matthias, the youngest of 12 children, who left his Tibbetts Island home off the coast of Maine, to sail around the world and seek his fortune as a sailor, before returning to the island to marry and settle down. It's a beautifully illustrated tribute to the solace of a country home.
