Sterling Children's Books says; "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 children 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 children 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."

Summer is a wonderful time for silly songs children will sing and dance to around the camp fire, in the car on a family trip or just for fun - Can You Canoe? gives you a dozen new songs to get you started!
