Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 October #2
    The latest addition to Berkes and Dubin's Over In . . . series of nature books features 10 animals found in and around North American rivers. Using the rhyme scheme and cadence of the counting rhyme "Over in the Meadow," the verses introduce families of manatees, blue herons, salmon, mallard ducks, water snakes, beavers, dragonflies, muskrats, tree frogs, and otters. The text reads aloud fairly well, apart from the occasional rough spot. Illustrating each verse is a pleasing collage created with painted, textured papers. The extensive back matter offers supplementary facts as well as musical accompaniment and suggestions for teachers and parents. A colorful, informative picture book. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
