Watersong by Tim McCanna


Watersong by Tim McCanna; illustrated by Richard Smythe. 2017. Watercolors and finished digitally. Published by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers.

Brief summary:  A fox goes into a watershed to catch a duck but misses and gets caught in a stream that throws him out when he falls over a waterfall to a forest below. He takes shelter in a fallen tree during a rain shower until it clears. He sees his mate under a rainbow, and they dance as he is reunited with his family on the return of a hunt.

Comments: This book’s beautiful full-paged watercolors illustrations compliment the gentle rhyming of the water. Clever rhyming with onomatopoeia  water sounds. There is a section called Listen to the Watersong explaining the ecosystem of a watershed.
