Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marianne Baker
Riversong, created by Steve Van Zandt on his mother's 1952 guitar, presents a folksy and moving tribute to river life and lifecycles in the delicate balance of nature. Van Zandt dedicated the book to his mother, who taught him "how to dance with life's music." In turn, he shares his appreciation for nature with the next generation. Singers, readers, and listeners wind through Zecca's illustrations of the river, flora, and fauna over the course of days and seasons, and through the course of a human lifetime. We hear the river trickle and roar along with the joyful music of the Banana Slug String Band. Jump right in! The refrain begs for singing along: Blurp ah pa-shoosh rumbly pound / A white rapid river makes a wonderful sound. This "creative nonfiction" portrays the best of song and picture books, devoted entirely to preserving nature. The text is rounded out with a picture glossary and vast text and website resources, making its appeal ageless and timeless.
