Over the River and Through the Wood

Lydia Maria Child’s beloved poem turned classic song embodies the magic of bundling up and riding a horse-drawn sleigh to visit Grandmother for Thanksgiving.

Set in the nineteenth century, this story features Christopher Manson’s indelible wood carvings, which capture the wonders of winter—such as sledding and ice-skating—and the Thanksgiving feast.

An exceptionally handsome treat.
Booklist

Like the poem itself, this title promises to have wide and ageless appeal.
School Library Journal

Full-page woodcuts in color recall the mid-19th century era when winter travel was by horse and sled. Other reminders of an earlier time are old-fashioned ice-skates, all-wood sleds, and of course, grandmother and grandfather preparing and serving dinner.
