Float written and illustrated by Daniel Miyares (2015)

This wordless picture book tells the story of a child who makes a paper boat and floats it on a rainy day. He finds the largest puddles and floats and jumps and has an epic adventure! The boat gets away and ends up in a drain sewer where it’s washed up and destroyed. Sadly, the boy returns home where he is dried and refreshed with a warm drink. Then it’s back to play. More adventures await for him and his paper airplane.


How much fun! Paper boats and paper planes encourage free play and creativity. The directions for both are on the end papers of the book. Whether you want to float in the water or on the air, I think it’s time to fold up some childhood memories!

The instructions printed in the book for making paper boats and planes are also wordless. Here are some simple to follow directions with words and pictures.
