Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
Amazon Journey: Cruising the Rain Forest by Gare Thompson is part of the "National Geographic Science Chapters" books. The text was "revised from Up the Amazon in the National Geographic Windows on Literacy program." This book starts at the mouth of the great Amazon River, and takes readers on a journey through much of the Northern parts of South America until readers find the source of one of the world's biggest rivers. National Geographic does not disappoint, and dozens of brilliant photographs are peppered throughout the text. However, sometimes the photographs are not placed as well as they could be. On page 32, the text describes how sloths "[hang] upside down by their three toes." Readers must then turn to page 34 to see the photograph of a sloth. Unfortunately, there is only one small map of South America and the Amazon River. Seeing how the book is a journey on the Amazon, it would have been helpful to have maps scattered throughout the text to illustrate the places the text was describing. This is a nice book for early readers who are interested in the cultures, animals, and plant life associated with the great Amazon River.
