Over the River and Through the Wood
Author: Lydia Maria Child
Illustrator: Christopher Manson
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, complete with pumpkin pie. Music and lyrics at the back of the book let you sing along.
