Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is beautifully written, full of great ideas and very accessible. The photographs and illustrations balance the text perfectly.

It arrived a couple of hours ago and has distracted me from what I supposed to have spent the morning doing! I buy quite a lot of books thinking they will encourage me to have a bit of fun with my family outdoors, however I know this one won't gather dust. I'm already planning a few trips to local rivers to try out the varied ideas.

It contains lots of interesting facts from wildlife to the weather, all in an accessible format but it is equally useful for all the wonderful ideas of things to do by the riverside. Being creative, relaxing, being curious or adventurous something for everyone and every mood. You can see the joy on the people's faces in the pictures. I bought it as a prompt for days out, but I'm enjoying reading it straight through and will be buying it as a present for a few friends who I know love being outside.

This book is a real gem.

This book is a journey and an education in how to get the most out of any river and its surroundings. To read it is to feel both nostalgic for adventures had and to find inspiration for future activities. It is an excellent guide for children with beautiful and informative illustrations and photographs.

I don't know Tessa, but she used to work for my employer, and a colleague suggested I invite her to come to speak about her newly published book. I though I'd best buy the book and give it a skim read...

Well the book is just brilliant. I have been completely drawn into the world of rivers Tessa so splendidly describes. As the other reviewers here have said, it is a magical mix of fun, interest and science. I enjoyed every paragraph and learned lots along the way. I defy anyone to skim read this book - its just too good.

We spend so mush time indoors and looking for the next thing to educate and excite our childrens' imaginations that we forget the wonderful rivers that are close to everyone in the country. Tessa Wardley's book is a must for all families looking to remind themselves of what we can do at little or no expense, and how marvellous our waterways are in this country. i'm off to jump in a river now!!
