Announcing the Publication of GREEN BOAT--YOUR MIND’S EYE IN A WORLD MADE VIVID by Sage Merriman

New Children’s Book is About Opening the Imagination... Features Cover Art by Vera Kulikovi 


GREEN BOAT is a poetic work of creative nonfiction... about how to open your Mind’s Eye—an essential skill set of the imagination. The book is written with the simple language and clarity of a picturebook, but its layered meanings serve children of all ages.

GREEN BOAT is a tribute to the poet William Carlos Williams and includes references to his work. Read it aloud as one side in a conversation with a child.

While GREEN BOAT stands alone, it expands on ideas presented in a companion title (CARDBOARD BOX) from author Sage Merriman.
