Acerca de


From its source high in the mountains of Peru, the powerful, multifaceted Amazon River descends to the Atlantic Ocean, influencing the environnment far beyond the rain forest through which it flows.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-In just a few sentences per page, this picture book evokes the sights, sounds, and atmosphere of the Amazon. A map on the first page charts the river and its tributaries, although the countries through which it flows are not labeled. A brief note beside the map provides information in small print and sophisticated language. Then Gilliland follows the river, from its birthplace in the mountains ("...a cold trickle no wider than a baby's foot"), down into the jungle with its wealth of animals and plants. Her simple, descriptive lines at times take on a haikulike resonance. Powzyk's watercolor illustrations, predominantly done in greens and tans, complement the text, and reinforce the feeling of the rainforest's dampness and mystery. Other books for young readers on this area focus on facts about deforestation. Gilliland has chosen instead to convey a sense of the place itself, including only a hint-"People need it, but they destroy it"-about its endangered status. Some explanation will be necessary to help children make sense of that statement, but discussing it will enrich the shared reading experience between adults and children.
