The Depth of the Lake and the Height of the Sky

We rated this book:


As a young boy and his parents make their way onto streets lined by giant furs, the panoramic view calls to him. The countryside is a place so unlike the one he knows best where the hustle and bustle of city life is ever-present. When he arrives at his grandparents’, he and his dog head out to explore. They meander through the woods, their senses taking in the elements of the outdoors. They discover a lone dock surrounded by the sea; he plunges into its depths. By the time the stars blanket the sky, it’s as if he’s experienced a lifetime in a single day.

Inspired by her own serene day in the wildness, surrounded by the sweet sounds of nature, the illustrator created this wordless tale of a child’s journey through the natural world. She uses thoughtful illustrations to capture the quiet essence of the innocence that’s portrayed. Meaning marks the pages, quietly dripping its purity on them.

The Depth of the Lake and the Height of the Sky will captivate children ages five to nine. It’ll prove a valuable resource for educators of early elementary-aged students. They’ll be drawn to its simplicity and pull from its contents imaginative stories of their own.
