Sill, Cathryn & Sill, John
Trade Paperback, 48 pages
A perfect entry for first conversations about waterways and conservation.
Author and illustrator team Cathryn and John Sill offer an accessible introduction to rivers and streams, touching on their major attributes, the animals and plants that live there, and their remarkable global diversity. Using simple, easy-to-understand language, the author teaches children what rivers and streams are and explains how various species of animals and plants have adapted to life in or along these waterways. Detailed, full-color art shows the characteristics of the world's different rivers and streams―from the mountain brooks of the Alps to the mighty Amazon River in South America. A glossary and afterword provide further details. Great for casual exploration and for early childhood and elementary education units on nature, environment, earth sciences, and ecosystems.
