Mabel Takes a Paddle Reviews
Mabel takes young readers on a kayak trip around Orange Lake. What a wonderful way for children to learn about the wildlife found in Maine. You'll find yourself cheering Mabel and her family on at the end when they are trying to beat the storm! I love the glossary in the back of the book, giving some information about all the wildlife Mabel encounters.
My students and I loved this book! It is a story about a family dog that takes a ride on a kayak. During her ride, she encounters different kinds of local Maine wildlife. She begins to feel that each animal is afraid of her, suddenly a storm comes and Mabel becomes very afraid. This delightful story has a feeling of adventure, especially as Mabel arrives safely home. Students enjoyed the wildlife and the information included in the back of the book presenting information about each animal. This book contains great dialogue, descriptive language and sound words. Many students could relate to thie experience and easily connected to this text. It is a great story to share with students, esepcially as the summer approaches.
