Ellen (ellend926) read this little book 1998-2005 in it the mother hangs laundry outside and little son plays, then has lunch and takes a nap. Afterwards they walk down to see the ships. Reminded me of St Lawrence River or other northeast shipping channel and I'd love to find it again. I may have bought it at a grocery store.

When is it set? Present day, 1950s, 19th century etc.?
Picture book?
What are the illustrations like?
Remember the cover?

Ellen (ellend926) Children's small picture book with white pages and modern day but realistic sort of golden book type illustrations, colors and little text. setting 1960 - 1980. I recall the boy was listening to sounds - bird in a tree, tall grass blowing in the wind. I've looked on worldcat, abe and powells to no avail.
