Peter Spier’s classic children’s book The Erie Canal, brings to life, the people living and traveling along the Erie Canal. Bright and colorful, the book draws the reader into the illustrations set to the words of the familiar folk song, Fifteen Miles on the Erie Canal or Low Bridge, Everybody Down. This book is a joy to share with pre-schoolers, elementary school students learning about the history of America and grandchildren singing the familiar folk song. Teachers use this book as a learning tool in the classroom, in teacher workshops and for ESOL students.
Here are just a few of the many rich illustrations you will find in the book.
