“Now you even see the drops in the water…”. I like how McCloskey keeps saying “you” to remind students that this is their experience. There are many moments where he tells the reader to breathe. It‘s very refreshing.
The second person perspective in this book is so fascinating to me. I‘ve never read a book like it. I would read this to my students and tell them to close their eyes and imagine this story, rather than watching the pictures.
