A boy explains his stutter in many ways for the reader to understand. When he comes home from school, despondent because he could not speak in front of the class, his father tells him "it's just a bad speech day" and takes him to the river for comfort. Words and images beautifully combine to create an effective - and affecting - look at speech challenges.

— Cathy


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.
