Over the River and Through the Woods by Maria Child - ADVISABLE

Child, L. Maria Over the River and Through the Woods, illustrated by Matt Tavares.  PICTURE BOOK.  Candlewick, 2013.  $9.  Content: G.  

This classic song was originally written as a poem for Thanksgiving in 1844.  Tavares’ illustrations bring out the winterwonderland for each verse – several more verses than any modern child actually knows exist.  It seems like it would be a great song for any holiday gathering and a cute book a read aloud with a n actual trip to Grandma’s.
