An educator favorite for first conversations about waterways and conservation. From Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the award-winning About Habitats and About... series.

"This powerful conservation message is both accessible and lovely." --Kirkus Reviews

In this addition to the About Habitats series, author and illustrator team Cathryn and John Sill offer an accessible introduction to rivers and streams, their major attributes, the animals and plants that live there, and their remarkable global diversity.

Former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what rivers and streams are and explain how various species of animals and plants have adapted to life in or along these waterways.Noted wildlife illustrator John Sill provides detailed, full-color art to show the characteristics of the world's different rivers and streams―from the mountain streams of the Alps to the mighty Amazon River in South America. A glossary and afterword provide further details. Great for casual exploration and for early childhood and elementary education units on nature, environment, earth sciences, and ecosystems.

The About Habitats series introduces children to specific habitats and their living and nonliving components. Each book in the series provides information about the nature and characteristics of the habitat while the full-page illustrations expand on that information.
