Saving rivers

October 26th, 2021

River conservationist and founder of both B.C. and World Rivers Day, Mark Angelo of Burnaby has published his first illustrated children’s book, The Little River That Could (FriesenPress $12.99) demonstrating to readers how the power of one can impact change. The book is inspired by the true story of Angelo who, as a young teacher, led the charge alongside students, teachers and community members to restore a small urban creek. “Serving as a tribute to all those who have dedicated their lives to cleaning up damaged rivers, the book aims to raise awareness among children – and those influencing them – about the value of our local waterways,” says Angelo. “Simply put, healthy rivers and streams make our communities better and safer places to live.” Illustrations are by Ros Webb. 9781039117136
