Out of Print Favorites:

  1. May I suggest “The Erie Canal” by Peter Spier to accompany “Thomas Finds a Treasure?” Spier’s illustrated picture book uses detailed and historically accurate illustrations to put to pictures the lyrics of the old canal tune “Fifteen Miles on the Erie Canal.” It will help children to visualize the scenes of 18th century life along the canal. It looks like this book went out of print, but many libraries may have it.
