School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-4-Each of these basic titles describes its subject, offering information about its tributaries, plant and animal life, human impact, history, and economic import. The content is broken down into manageable topics, with each spread presenting text on the left and large, full-color illustrations on the right. Crisp photographs, maps, and diagrams explaining various processes described in the texts (for example, how a lock works in Mississippi) expand readers' understanding of the topics. Unfamiliar words are written in bold, pointing readers to a glossary. A pronunciation guide assists with difficult terms. These titles offer just enough detail about each river to inform students without overwhelming them. With clear narratives and appealing full-color illustrations, these books are solid resources.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia (c) Copyright 2010.
