About the Book
Over a period of several months, the students of a fourth grade class at James Whitcomb Riley School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin were introduced to the over-looked, endangered Kinnickinnic River in their community. Through their own eloquent drawings, charts, poems, maps, and posters, we follow them as discovery turns to understanding and, finally, activism.
The project was a collaboration with Milwaukee's Sixteenth Street Community Health Center. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book goes to support SSCHC's on-going Kinnickinnic River Health Improvement Initiative.
