Just before dawn, it is a picture of complete stillness and peace. It is cold and wet. Next to the lake, below a tree, an old man and his grandson lay asleep on a mat. Faraway, the dark mountains seem to offer protection. There is not one movement all around. And then suddenly, a sliver of light appears at the horizon. The lake waters rise, the mist lifts. The bats are here, the frogs are here, the birds are here. It is the break of dawn. The old man wakes his grandson, draws water from the kae, starts a fire, and prepares breakfast. He then keeps his mat, brings his boat down to the shore, gently rows to the middle of the lake. We hear the sounds of the oars, the rushing of the waters. The mountains and water turn a beautiful jade green. 

An exceptional book that gently reveals the beauty of the break of dawn, something that occurs each day but may not be well appreciated.

 

黎明前,山湖边,一切静息如止,又冷又湿。湖边一棵树下,一老一少裹着毯子,还在熟睡,远处有黑乌乌的山守护着,四处没有一点动静。突然,天边泛起一丝微光,湖水摇荡起来,雾气开始升腾,蝙蝠来了,青蛙来了,鸟儿来了……清晨来了。老人叫醒孙子,从湖边打来湖水,升起火堆,准备早食,然后国企毯子,将老船推下水,慢慢滑到湖心,桨声噗噗,水生哗哗,突然,山和水变得一片翠绿。这是四届凯迪克奖得主尤里•舒利瓦茨的代表作品,他以细致入微的观察与细腻的笔触,诗意地描绘黎明前那一点点山水、光影、人的变化。对孩子而言,这样一本书,是培养感受能力的绝佳读物。
