Loon Summer by Barbara Santucci

Bank Street College
Best Children's Books of the Year

Loon Summer

From the book jacket:
    "My first morning on the lake I hear the loons. 'Oh---OOOO--oooo.' Their sad songs remind me Mom isn't coming to the cottage this summer."

Rainie knows that this summer will be different. As she and her dad spend time together at the cottage, Rainie is painfully aware of her mom's absence. Throughout the summer, Rainie watches a pair of loons on the lake--watches them lay eggs, hatch babies, and be together as a loon family.
    "You told me loons stay together for life. Why can't you and Mom?" she asks her dad.
