Raven and River Review by Karen Yuen

Fairbanks, AK 99709

This artistic picture book about ravens and rivers in Alaska is written poetically and illustrated majestically. This book would make an excellent choice for a read aloud story hour about nature or seasons. The book includes breathtaking illustrations of many Alaskan animals, including the bear, beaver, snowshoe hare, grouse, red squirrel, and wolves. The journey of the raven takes place across the icy Alaskan wilderness, just as spring is dawning. Along the way, the raven's unique cry wakes up a host of sleepy animals, who long for the river to melt so the change of season will come. This is a lovely book that would inspire even the most home-bound to begin nature study and enjoying God's creation outdoors!
