Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A basic ecological concept splashes to life in this picture book project, which won an art school contest for work dealing with environmental concerns. The brief text poses the question ``Whose river is this?,'' while each successive spread introduces a living thing that makes use of the waterway. Frogs, water beetles, cattails and children stake their claims with phrases such as ``I need the river'' and ``I was born here,'' until the text concludes, ``It's everyone's river.'' An illustrated glossary identifies the plants and animals that appear throughout the book. With a painted-paper collage technique after the style of Eric Carle, Halpern depicts a virtual rainbow of life. Ample white backgrounds provide a vivid contrast for the boldly colored creatures and large black type. The message here may sound a bit ponderous to older readers, but younger children will welcome this cheery first look at ecology. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-- This entry in the flood of environmental books for children stands out because of its illustrations. A series of boldly designed double-page spreads answers the question, ``Whose river is this?'' by showing all of its inhabitants--turtle, muskrat, dragonfly, beaver, et al., each one claiming the water as home. On the final pages, two children exclaim, ``it's everyone's river!'' The illustrations are striking collages made of painted and cut paper against a white background. The patterns found in some creatures--the spotted salamander and striped fish--contrast effectively with the swirling colors of the water's current. The text is simple and repetitive, making this a possible addition to toddler storytimes. However, because it is essentially a catalog of river creatures, the text lacks any tension and does not provide any details about the animals' habitat. Buy this if you have preschool teachers looking for environmental books on the simplest level. --Caroline Parr, Central Rappahannock Regional Library, Fredericksburg, VA
