A moving story about a river and the cycle of life, from raindrop to ocean

In this beautiful and moving tribute, a river is born and carried along. It plays, sparkles, grows, moves.
It rushes, falls, is still. It carries. And when a river reaches the sea, it becomes it, and then it rises up into the sky, rains down, and begins again. Not unlike life.

THEY CALL ME RIVER is a lovely, poetic picture book read. The book contains a lyrical poem about the water that reflects the human experience as well. Each picture is full of artistic details and contains people that similarly reflect the actions of the water.

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.
