True North Favourite: The Kids Cottage Book

The Kids Cottage Book by Jane Drake and Ann Love

Growing up with a cottage on the lake, a copy of this book was a special gift from my grandmother. I remember my siblings and I would read it on rainy days to find projects to work on when the weather cleared. We learned how to paddle a canoe, pack for a hike, prepare a campfire and tell time using the sun. A copy of this book is still at the cottage andI still love leafing through it on lazy summer days.
