Synopsis

Raven and River by Nancy White Carlstrom

Raven and River leads young readers on a fantastical journey with a raven across the icy Alaska landscape on the verge of spring. Along the way, the raven's sonorous cry wakes a cast of sleeping woodland creatures, including a bear, a beaver, a hare, and a squirrel - all of whom join him in imploring the still-frozen river to melt and thereby initiate the change of seasons. Packed with information and featuring vibrant full-color illustrations by Jon Van Zyle, Raven and River brings to life these two important harbingers of Alaska's spring.

Reviews

The beauty and majesty of nature is brought to life in this dramatic, richly descriptive picture book. Bold, realistic views of wildlife blend wonderfully with a lyrical, poetic text.... A fine choice for story hours devoted to nature or the seasons. (Library Journal)
