How to Cross a Pond: Poems about Water
Marilyn Singer / Author, Meilo So / Illustrator Alfred A. Knop
Popular characters and subjects return in companion volumes and new series installments. Marilyn Singer and Meilo So team up again in How to Cross a Pond: Poems About Water, a companion to Footprints on the Roof: Poems About the Earth. Singer's evocative verses conjure a watery world, as in these lines from ""What Water Can Be"": ""A furrow that's filling/ Water, collective/ Your face in the puddle/ Water, reflective/ A network of rivers/ Water, connective."" So's watercolors flow across the pages in washes of blue.
