Can You Canoe And Other Adventure SongsCan You Canoe? And Other Adventure Songs

Written by the Okee Dokee Brothers

Illustrated by Brandon Reese

Publisher’s Synopsis: I’m wondering if you’d go wandering with me
Through the wilderness and woods
To where the winds are blowin’ free.

The Grammy® Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers—Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing—celebrate the beauty of nature and the joys of being outdoors and unplugged. Their family-friendly music aims to inspire parents and kids to get outside and get creative.Can You Canoe? journeys cross-country in 12 songs, from the rolling hills of Appalachia in the east to the canyons and campfires of the West. Along the way, The Okee Dokee Brothers’ irresistible, boot-stompin’ tunes invite kids to wander through the woods and wilderness, where they’ll discover hungry black bears and tall-tale spinners; quiet canoes and cozy camping tents; a jumpin’ jamboree and a bullfrog opera. Brandon Reese’s lively illustrations, and a CD to sing along with, will make this set a children’s classic.

Ages 4+ | Publisher: Sterling Children’s Books | 2016 | ISBN-13: 978-1454918035

  • Can you Canoe? I imagine this book would be a blast to have. I can remember drive times to locations seeming to disappear as groups of us children on a bus would be singing together all sorts of fun songs.
