Hello River: A Children’s Book

PRINT • Illustration • Design

‘Hello River’ is a book to celebrate “the river”. It highlights connections to a river that may be new to a little person, such as drinking a glass of water or flushing the toilet. It includes river-related lesson plans for parents to practice with their children.

It was created using all natural inks — botanical and mineral — sourced from plants and rocks near the Mississippi River. The main colors are sourced from sumac, walnut and buckthorn.

A collaboration with Shanai Matteson
