What I loved: This is a beautifully illustrated book about water and the way it flows and travels. Readers are sure to notice the similarities between the water and human experience through the interesting details in the illustrations. The text flows lyrically, reading like a poem. Each page contains a short phrase or two, making the pages turn really quickly. This is a book that adults can appreciate as they read to young children.
Final verdict: A lovely picture book that connects the human experience to nature, THEY CALL ME RIVER is a poetic and artistic read about water.
