A River by Marc Martin
This term we are focusing on the new Geography syllabus. I have been hunting for picture books to support our staff and I have found over 70 that are perfect.
A River is a visual delight and it fits in so well with our new syllabus taking the child from their home or local environment and view out of the window, through the city, "beyond the fields that look like giant patchwork quilts", into the hills, the jungle and out to sea.
To fully appreciate this very special book you need to see the art work. Marc Martin shares nearly every image on his web site. I would match A River with Cry me a River by Rodney McRae.
Here is a tiny selection of the other picture books for our Geography studies.
