Time runs like a river, never resting, moving steadily on. But if we notice how different each minute can be, we can appreciate them before they are gone. Rivers can be fast-flowing or still, raging or calm, just like us.

This lyrical picture book from the award-winning artist Emma Carlisle explores the concepts of time and change through the ebb and flow of a river. From the fleeting flash of a kingfisher to slow grinding of pebbles, this beautiful book encourages readers to notice the big and small things happening in nature, as well as reflecting on things which have come and gone, and those yet to be enjoyed. With themes of mindfulness and nature, the book also includes non-fiction spreads at the back of the book which can be shared with children.

Thank you to all parents who order these books from us. This ensures the initiative remains free to your school and we can continue to bring amazing authors to schools in our region. Books ordered via Our Bookshop will be signed on the day.
