Reviews

School Library Journal
“Fun yet informative line drawings elucidate an equally clear narrative, allowing readers to pool a reservoir of facts that can run close to home when website such as the EPA's are offered with the suggestion that students can ‘figure out the path of water that flows from your school.'”

National Science Teachers Association Recommends
“An excellent addition for classroom and school libraries and as a resource for school and science fair projects.”

Paul J. McManus, LSP, PWS and President, EcoTec, Inc.
“Explore Rivers and Ponds! introduces limnology and wetland science to kids in a way that works—with busy hands and muddy boots. The text is interwoven with the terminology of the science, with handy definitions that will have meaning to young readers. Teachers will find the book's simple projects do-able, engaging, and educational.”
