Learning becomes fun for everyone in this book about the geography of north American rivers and about the animals that live in this habitat. The amazing artwork in this book will inspire kids in classrooms and at home to appreciate the world around us!
The great rivers of North America are teeming with life and on the pages of Over in a River—from blue herons in the Hudson to salmon in the Columbia, and from dragonflies in the Rio Grande to mallards in the St. Lawrence. Children will "slither" like water snakes and "slide" like otters while singing to the tune of "Over in a Meadow." Read about the snake, beaver, frog, otter, dragonfly, and more that lives along the rivers! Kids love counting books, too! What a delightful way to learn about riparian habitats and geography at the same time!
