The Rivers of North America are Teeming with Life!
I may have mentioned I grew up along two rivers that included the Ohio (I type sarcastically). There are lots of things that I miss about being so close to a river like that although flooding is not one of them! I like to be able to share my experiences with Brooke since we are now living in the middle of Texas and Dawn Publishing fall line-up includes one that focuses on North American watersheds to the tune of ‘Over in the Meadow’. Did you know that the United States alone has over 250,000 rivers? Wow! This book only focuses on the Top 10 although my Ohio River is part of that major group (St. Johns, Columbia, St. Lawrence, Ohio, Hudson, Colorado, Rio Grande, Missouri, Sacramento and Mississippi Rivers). Each river features a ‘hidden’ animal, for example, Ohio has the lovely water snakes and the Rio Grande has fireflies. Learn about the animals and the songs they make along the waters of the river. As always, Dawn Publishing put some great educational material at the end including sheet music for the book, maps and information about the watershed community ecosystem. Wonderful touch!
