Written with uplifting words of encouragement, Near a River is a photographic children’s book about two young bald eagles who work together to learn to soar above the storms of life. Young readers will surely find that Near a River will have a special place in their hearts forever.
The crisp, clear, and rare pictures of young eagles learning to fly will surely enchant everyone, adults and children alike!
Here are some facts about this wonderful book:
- It is a common core reader for grades K-2.
- Word lists are at the back of the book, sight words and other words.
- The large font, ChrisHMKBold, is a dyslexic font—all the dyslexic letters such as “d” and “b” are different enough that a child with dyslexia can distinguish them from each other.
- Near a River will motivate a child to look to parents for guidance, to persist when trying to reach a goal, and to enjoy both nature and reading.

About the Author
Bobbie J Rae, or BJ for short, currently lives in a small rural town in the United States with her husband, and they have four grown children. She loves nature, computers, animals, traveling, art, children, reading, and God. When she isn’t writing children’s books, she enjoys practicing her photography skills. BJ started writing children’s books because she knows that all it takes to hook a child on reading is one book. Just one book read as a child can find a special place in someone’s heart for the rest of the person’s life.
Along with writing children’s books, BJ also writes articles of hope and encouragement for those who seek hope in hard times. Some of her topics include “Be Successful,” Parenting”, “Overcoming Depression,” and more. To see a list of all of BJ’s topics, click on the “Articles by Nearariver.com” menu item.

Before her beloved Grandma died, BJ promised her that she herself would continue to spread her Grandma’s message. BJ’s Grandma shared her message of faith, love, hope, and encouragement with everyone around her every day of her life. Click here to read the story about BJ’s promise.
