A Little River Which Became An Ocean by Silvia Marsz is an educational book for children where they learn about Sky and Water, and their influence and importance in our lives and the environment. The Sky tells the little stream that flows in the woods that he can see everything and she is unaware of what is happening in the rest of the world. As the story progresses, Sky gets to see the power of the little stream and realizes that he was unfair to her. The book talks about the seasons and how these balance nature.

I found the book appealing and fascinating, and the author presents the story in an aesthetic way. It's interesting to see how Sky challenges the little stream and gets to see her full power and beauty. The paintings are colorful and vibrant, and they capture the essence of the story beautifully and give life to the author's words. It's a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their kids and grandkids. The book is an excellent choice for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries as it introduces young readers to two of the five elements.

The story not only teaches children about nature and climate changes, but also not to look down upon others, and to appreciate everything around them. The book is a must-read for all kids and should also be kept in school and public libraries as it is good to use for reference.
