A beautiful book for young readers about hope.
A small girl is building her own little boat out of bits and pieces. She sails it on a puddle - it's a disaster. She modifies the design. She sails it on a pond - another disaster, but it gets a little bit further. She sails it in a stream and then out to sea. This book is about resilience, resourcefulness, imagination and hope. It's about creativity and not being perfect at something the first time you do it. This is a lovely, gentle story.
