When community members work together with trucks and ships to clean up the town's riverfront, an artist and her child hammer, chisel, weld and zap the found materials into something beautiful. Young makers will find inspiration in the playful, rhyming text and mixed media illustrations, while endnotes provide recycled-art activity ideas. Art project inspired by Steve Bateman, a graduate of Minneapolis College of Art and Design, who is based out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
