Daniel Miyares (2015), Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

A young boy and his dad make a boat together, and the boy is excited to take it out in the rain to play. At first, he’s afraid the rain will damage the boat, but soon he’s setting his imagination and the boat free until that boat, like all temporary things in this life, is no longer a boat. The boy is sad until his dad shows him how to make more boats. As a wordless picture book, the message becomes clear through the illustrations alone: every day is a new opportunity to start over and create your new adventure.
