I set off one morning in my little red canoe.
My dog wagged his tail.
"Can I come, too?"
"You bet," I said.
"A trip for two—just me and you."

When a girl and her dog set out on a canoe trip together, they're expecting a quiet afternoon for two. Then a beaver decides to join them, even when the girl protests that "It's a one-dog canoe." And when a loon, and a wolf, and a bear, and a moose all ask for a ride, it's almost too much. But they all manage to fit in this one-dog canoe—until a frog comes along. . . .

Lots of fun, bright illustrations. Great book for illustrating how we can keep taking on more and more until finally one little thing becomes too much.

For some reason I really like reading this book to my 16 mo. old. He likes to listen to it too! The story is cute and the illustrations are excellent!
