2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 
A journey of the imagination, starting and beginning at home, looking out a window, at a river, wondering where it goes, hither and yon. The language is full and rich, as are the illustrations, reflecting the various landscapes of the River's journey. The river slides and murmurs. A window view expands to lush double page spreads. Lots to see and talk about on every page or just quietly enjoy. Edie Ching (up to 7).
