About this book

Along the River

Vanina Starkoff • Jane Springer

Boats of all shapes and sizes travel on the river, through the seasons, toward the sea. Who will you meet on the river?

This vibrant picture book from Brazil depicts the joy of the journey, showing in simple yet detailed illustrations the people you might meet along the way, the sights you might see and the food you might eat. Readers will delight in identifying recurring details when rereading. Reminiscent of the highly acclaimed Jimmy the Greatest!, which received six starred reviews, Along the River is a celebration of community bonds and shared experiences.

With strong social studies curriculum connections, Along the River introduces young children to an alternate form of transportation, as well as to some of the customs and culture of Brazil.

Awards and Praise
On pages painted the color of ripe mangoes, vibrant illustrations bring zip to the otherwise languid experience of drifting down a Brazilian waterway.
