On TV we watch our city where people navigate the river-streets in any way they can.... "Look." Max points. "it's Sarah's house." All I see is roof. In searing personal poems, Jane Kurtz explores what it's like to struggle through a flood and pull your life together afterward. Inspired by Kurtz's own flood experience, this tale is realistic and unforgettable. Not just a moving story of one girl's courage, "River Friendly, River Wild" is a tribute to everyone who's ever faced great loss.
"Powerful...an evocative look at recovery from personal loss." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Offer[s] a clear sense of what it's like to live through a flood" -- Horn Book "A book about the nature of home, community, and picking up the pieces." -- Booklist "The illustrations are glowing. Portrayals of the family and the neighborhood emphasize closeness and working together, underlining the message of community and cooperation." -- School Library Journal "Offerï¿½sï¿½ a clear sense of what it's like to live through a flood" -- "Horn Book"
