Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-- A boy and his father journey down the Amazon by steamboat to visit the city of Belem, a first visit for the boy. Lewin's impressionistic watercolors convey the lush river banks and surrounding foliage, and the crowded excitement of the city's harbor. The light-filled pictures, dense with detail, reinforce the theme that the riches of the rain forest must be protected. Unfortunately, the message is delivered in a didactic manner that verges on the sentimental, with a tear-filled lecture by the father and a remarkable sacrifice by the son. Yet the text gives little information about how to save the Amazon region from farming and mining. Readers are told that killing the largest fish is a terrible mistake, without learning why. They are shown folk medicines made from animals that need protecting, without a word about the conflict that surrounds this issue. Since children will respond to the pictures and the timely message, it is disappointing that the text is so thin and unsatisfying. --Kathleen Odean, Moses Brown School, Providence, RI

Young Paulo, who lives deep in the Amazon jungle, has never been to the faraway city to see the harbor and the market. His father promises to take him there for his birthday, and Paulo is not disappointed by what he finds--the busy docks, a marvelous array of colorful fish, and crowded market stalls with all manner of intriguing wares. But with the wonder comes an awareness that greed and disregard have compromised the bounty of the river and the ocean. Paulo takes the lesson to heart, and when he returns home he makes his own small but important contribution to preserving the environment. Written and illustrated by Lewin, this is a well-intentioned picture book that will fit snugly on the shelf alongside books such as Cherry's "The Great Kapok Tree" (1990). But it's the art, not the rather placid story, that gives the book its verve. Some of Lewin's most impressive watercolor paintings are of the great harbor, filled with bustling humanity and boats of many kinds. They capture the place and the people with care and loving regard. The book is dedicated to activist Chico Mendes.
