" Related video of the illustrator's work. I've tagged this with "Christmas," but it was originally a Thanksgiving song. The subtitle is "The New England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day." " said.

" I love David Catrow but this book was a tad bit to follow. " said.

" I liked it, but it fell totally flat with the kids. Pictures were too busy for an audience and the words are full as dishwater. " said.

" Love the illustrations and short story about the author. " said.

" One half of great equals maybe okay. Lydia Maria Child's poem, Over the River and Through the Wood, is very good. David Catrow's illustrations in this book are great. They just aren't so good together. Child's poem sets a traditional feel to the holidays while Catrow's illustrations are creative, amazing, cheerful, and nonsensical. Catrow really needed a different story to illustrate! " said.

" Mom, Dad and their three children takes a trip to visit the children’s grandfather. On the way they pass other travelers in vehicles unlike their own. Over the River and Through The Wood was a thoroughly enjoyable read. David Catrow’s colorful and graphic illustrations actually told the story. " said.

"This spoof of a classic song was engaging and interesting. The illustrations in the book were so bright and colorful that they would really help peak a child's interest in the story. Although I am unfamiliar with the original version of the song, maybe some of my students would be or it could be a learning experience for all of us. The pages of the book were mostly full of the illustrations with a very small section of the pages being taken up with words. I would read this book to the classroom as a read-aloud during the holiday season, but more specifically around Thanksgiving. The book can be used as a forum for discussion as to what we (as a classroom) are thankful for and a possible lesson could come from this book." said.

" Nicely done verison of the 1844 poem. Two page spread illustrations alternate between the family on their journey to the grandparents house and the grandparents making the Thanksgiving dinner. " said.
