Today I Am a River

In these poems, children imagine they are animals, plants, and elements in the natural world to embody movement and play.

Today I am sunlight!
Heart happy,
as a yellow bird
flying to the top
of the sky.

Bright, lyrical poems and lovely illustrations celebrate the natural world and invite children to imagine themselves immersed in it. As they pretend they are a skunk or a snake, a cloud or a star, they will move their bodies and enjoy imaginative play.

From the creative team who brought you Breathe and Be: A Book of Mindfulness Poems, Today I Am a River is perfect for quiet time or bedtime, as well to spark activities at storytime or in the classroom. It empowers children to imagine the world from a multitude of perspectives other than their own—and instills an appreciation and reverence for the natural world.
