Join award winning author and illustrator Elisha Cooper for a storytime featuring his newest book River.
In Cooper's flowing prose and stunning watercolor scenes, readers follow along as a woman and her canoe begin their trek down the Hudson River, exploring the wildlife, flora and fauna, and urban landscape at the river's edge. Through perilous weather and river rushes, the canoe and her captain survive and maneuver their way down the river back home.
River is an outstanding introduction to seeing the world through the eyes of a young explorer and a great picture book for the STEAM curriculum.
Maps and information about the Hudson River and famous landmarks are included in the back of the book.
Elisha Cooper is the award-winning author of Big Cat, Little Cat - a 2018 Caldecott Honor Book, An Animal Alphabet, Train, Farm, Homer and Beach, which won the 2006 Society of Illustrators Gold Medal.
