A River Ran Wild by Lynne Cherry is a piece of history, and a lesson about respect for the environment. Plus, it is a beautiful taste of the state of New Hampshire!
When I first picked up this book, I thought I had a nice picture book about a river that runs through Massachusetts and New Hampshire, but it turned out to be so much more!
This book would be a great book to read when learning about Native Americans or when learning about the environment. It's a great choice to read on Earth Day because of the environmental lesson. It's also a great book for teaching history as well as the beauty of New England.
I had many thoughts about activities connected to this book, but settled on one that celebrates the beauty of the clean waters of the Nashua River.
Come on over to Elementary Matters to see more about the book, a fun art project to go with the book, and see more books about New Hampshire as well as more books by Lynne Cherry! (I'm sure you'll recognize a few!)
