Author Gail Karwoski and Illustrator Connie McLennan did a terrific job on this gentle and interesting picture book about nine rivers around the world and the sleeping habits of the animals living by each river. It was a great learning lesson for me ¿ I found out the names of animals I'd never heard of before! This book was written to lull little ones to sleep, but it also serves as a wonderful geography lesson for older children and adults as well. The only continent not represented in this book was Antarctica. Can you guess what nine rivers the author picked? You'll just have to read this book to find out! As with all Sylvan Dell books, there is a section at the end of the book and also online called For Creative Minds. It contains 'Adaptation Matching Activity' (which has all the animals mentioned in the story) as well as a section entitled 'River Map Activity' that I found fascinating and fun. This is a great all-around quality Sylvan Dell book that rates a high five from me for its ability to hold my interest from beginning to end.
