North Woods Girl by Aimee Bissonette, Claudia Mcgehee

Her grandmother was different.  She didn't bake cookies or cakes or wear white aprons.  She wore flannel shirts and jeans and walked in the woods...

The Minnesota Historical Society and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published.  It's a 32 page picture book.

The illustrations are strong, done in prime colors and show the North Woods and the animals within.  Grandmother is always happy to see her granddaughter.  When she stays, they go on walks in the woods.  She sees the ducks and some of the animals of the forest.  They sit on a log by the lake that Grandfather had cut and placed there as a resting spot.  

This story gives you a feeling of peace and comfort.  There's no cell phones around.  It's just two people communicating with nature and feeling content.  Camping does that for me.  Have you been to the woods lately?
