The California-based River of Words (ROW) has gained fame as an important nonprofit that trains teachers, park naturalists, grassroots groups, and others to incorporate observation-based nature exploration and the arts into young people’s lives. One of the group’s most important annual projects is to take the youth pulse from the United States and 22 other countries, by asking for writing on water and nature. This anthology collects the best of that writing, with accompanying artwork. Divided into nine geographical areas (California, Pacific Northwest, Inland West, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest, Mid Atlantic, South, and International), the book presents writers from ages six to 18. In poems such as “I Love My Dog,” “Seasons in Our Watershed,” “History of a Cornfield,” and “Swamp Shack,” River of Words exhibits diverse voices, as well as some bilingual poems. A remarkable confluence of K-12 curriculum, children’s literature, environmentalism, and poetry, this thoughtful book, in the words of Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Gary Snyder, gives us “pleasure and hope.”

This whole collection was written and illustrated by children! I really found it incredible to see what how artistically expressive each child artist, 4 years old to 19 years old can be with different modes of art. To me everything is art. The way we see life is art.

This touching book is not just for children. I keep it on my coffee table for all to enjoy and they do! I bought it for my sister and her child but don't think I can give it up. I don't have kids but have greatly enjoyed the art and poems in this absolutely beautiful book with my morning coffee. It gives me hope for the future that talent such as this exists, is cultivated, and nutured by the wonderful people at River of Words! I can't say enough!! My favorite poem is by Jose Perez (age 7!) and is called "Rivers".

Rivers splatter,
hitting rocks below.
But don't be afraid,
there is poetry,
deep inside each crevice.

Can't you just feel the cool clean water and the worlds within!!! Really neat book.
