A really lovely book with fantastic illustrations. Im hoping the book will inspire and help my Year 5 classes to understand the journey of a river. Im sure it will and the explanation pages and glossary at the end will be a very good learning tool.

It's non-fiction, presented in a fiction style. My year 5s were enthralled and intrigued. The language is wonderfully poetic, with stunning illustrations, yet the actual content is a factual account of river from source to sea. It sparked lots of discussion and was a lovely introduction to some complex geography. Superb for Guided Reading too.
