Description: A Washington Post Best Children's Book of 2021 A Marginalian (formerly Brain Pickings) Loveliest Children's Book of 2021 Shortlisted for the 2023 Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (German Children's Literature Award) "What is a river?" an inquisitive young girl asks her grandmother as the pair sits together on the river's banks. Like many questions posed by curious children, this one is deceptively simple in its asking. Yet, its answer spans the very world itself: geography and history, science and religion, industry and environmentalism. Through author-illustrator Monika Vaicenaviciene's eyes, the river becomes a vessel for enormous complexity, a lens through which the interconnectedness of our shared earth can be understood.
