Description


Emmy Award–winning animator Maciek Albrecht’s picture book They Call Me River is a moving story about a river and the cycle of life, from raindrop to ocean.
 
In this beautiful and moving tribute, a river is born and carried along. It plays, sparkles, grows, moves. It rushes, falls, is still. It carries. And when a river reaches the sea, it becomes it, and then it rises up into the sky, rains down, and begins again. Not unlike life.
 
“Albrecht follows a narrating river from its origin to the ocean with simple, songlike writing and striking artwork.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“An affecting metaphor for the cycle of life.” —Kirkus Reviews
