The New York Times Book ReviewI'm not even sure I know what the book is about—and I really don't care. Like a young girl I saw recently in a bookstore, I just run my hands over each page and say, "This is so beautiful"…Each reader will have a different version of what occurs, but the pictures and the bear's journey beg to be returned to again and again. For anyone who wants to develop visual acuity in children, The Island provides a springboard for conversation, reminding all ages of the wonder and magnificence of the natural world. And it demonstrates that we don't always need words to support an amazing visual experience.
