Rivers: A Visual History From River to Sea
by Peter Goes
Age Range: 6-8
Rivers presents a remarkable visual history from river to sea. Each double-page spread proceeds from continent to continent showing the five oceans and major rivers. From the Nile to the Amazon, the Mekong Delta to the Mississippi or the Murray to the Waikato, this book is full of fascinating facts about regional geography, history, culture, natural history, culture and folklore.
From the author of international bestseller Timeline Peter Goes, translated from Dutch by Bill Nagelkerke, this large-format production includes infographics and maps. Each map is a different colour with swirling text of facts, interspersed with humour as well as some serious points too with references to the damage to our planet from plastics in our rivers and oceans and oil spills. A lively reference book for children both at home and in the classroom.
