Picture Book Review: One Morning In Maine by Robert McCloskey

One Morning in Maine by Robert McCloskey Robert McCloskley’s classic, One Morning in Maine, is one of our family’s favorite picture books! The copy in these pictures was David’s when he was a boy, just to give you an idea of how well-loved this book is.


It is the story of a young girl named Sal, who discovers a loose tooth one morning, loses it (literally), and then wishes on other things to get her secret wish of an ice cream cone.

She helps her father dig for clams, and watches over her baby sister Jane, making sure she has something to wish on too.

It is a sweet book. When Liam was young, he would pretend that we all lived in Maine and had to ride a motor-boat to get groceries. Now, Brontë requests that I use her name instead of Sal, and Stella’s name instead of Jane.

And, of course, I don’t mind at all. :)
