Kirkus Reviews

“Deeply respectful of the places where man and nature meet, this is a serene journey of beauty.”
Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal

“Ishida’s brilliantly colored spreads, done in mixed media, cast a swirling, whirling spell of balanced design. Working together in perfect pace, both text and illustration explore the natural world. . .The book supports standards in science, art, and language arts while providing children with an artistically rich visual and aural experience.”
—School Library Journal

Publishers Weekly

“. . . Ishida’s voluptuous, dynamic full-bleed illustrations. . . The artist’s dense, smudged colors and cheery, streamlined characterizations may bring to mind classic Golden Books, while her strongly horizontal compositions feel bracing and bold – every spread conveys the energy of the water coursing inexorably through the landscape.”
