Come Again, Pelican by Don Freeman


Don Freeman, creator of the beloved Corduroy books, first published Come Again, Pelican in 1961 and it has been re-released May 2024. Seeing the cover was enough for me to know that I would absolutely adore this book. Each page of softly blended colors and child-like simplicity will capture and keep the attention of youngsters. They may even be inspired to copy some of the art. 

 A little boy named Ty is camping with his parents (their annual holiday) and he is excited to head out to fish. He greets his pelican friend and together they spend the day fishing (Ty learns a bit about the tides as well.)  Children learn about helping one another, friendship, and the pure magic of summer adventures! 

To learn more about Don Freeman, his background, and other books that he wrote, check out his author website managed by his son, Roy. I highly recommend Come Again, Pelican.  It's the perfect summer read aloud for the adventurous child. 

Disclaimer: I received a free digital copy of Come Again, Pelican from NetGalley for the purpose of review. No other compensation was received.
