Summary

When you live on an island, things are different. Sometimes harder. Sometimes sweeter. Sometimes quieter. Experience a day in the life of a child growing up on a Pacific Northwest island in this beautifully written and illustrated picture book.

Off the coast of Washington State rise hundreds of small islands. Some are lush and green. Others are rugged and rocky. And each has its own personality.

Many islands are home mostly to deer, but quite a few have farms and fields, schools and stores, and people.

What is it like to live on an island?

Award-winning author Emma Bland Smith explores what it's like to grow up on an island in the Pacific Northwest from the perspective of a young boy, who wakes up to the sound of a ferry horn, hikes through the woods to get to his bus stop, drops crab pots for dinner, and falls asleep counting orcas instead of sheep.

This book celebrates what's special about island culture and includes a brief nonfiction element on each spread that relates to the narrative.
