I hardly have words for this stunning and lyrical award winner by poet Jordan Scott and illustrated by Sydney Smith (Small in the City). Aside from its pure, breathtaking beauty, it will simply crack open your heart as Scott tells his own story of a boy with a stutter. His wise father has some answers. A gatefold near the end is jaw dropping.

— Francine


When a boy who stutters feels isolated, alone, and incapable of communicating in the way he'd like, it takes a kindly father and a walk by the river to help him find his voice. Through this powerful and uplifting story, poet Jordan Scott uses his own experiences to reveal what it's like to be a child who feels lost, lonely, or unable to fit in. Compassionate parents everywhere will recognize how they, too, can reconnect their children to the world around them.
