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.


Albrecht follows a narrating river from its origin to the ocean with simple, songlike writing and striking artwork.
Publishers Weekly
An affecting metaphor for the cycle of life.
