The Mississippi River is the chief river of the largest drainage system in North America. It flows entirely within the USA, and its drainage basin even reaches into Canada! It rises in north Minnesota, and then it meanders south for over two thousand miles into the Mississippi River Delta at the Gulf of Mexico, draining into thirty-one USA states and two Canadian provinces between the Rocky mountains and the Appalachian Mountains! Ranking as the fourth longest and tenth largest river in the world, the mighty Mississippi borders or passes right through several states; and the good part is . . . if you happen to go to New Orleans, Louisiana, you can take a trip aboard a steam driven paddle boat and pretend you are Mark Twain, or Tom Sawyer, just floating down the Mississippi river on a river raft.
Written by the award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, with photographs by John D. Weigand, this learn to read book is meant not to teach a bunch of facts about this mighty river, but rather to give a kid a feel for what the river is and means. Word repetition, word recognition and rhyme, combined with photographs and fun, makes this book perfect for a boy with imagination! And be sure to look for the music video that goes with this book on the Bellissimavideo YouTube channel.
