Over in a River: Flowing Out to the Sea
by Marianne Berkes
Illustrated by Jill Dubin
The great rivers of North America are teeming with life and on the pages of Over in a River—from blue herons in
the Hudson to salmon in the Columbia, and from dragonflies in the Rio Grande to mallards in the St. Lawrence.
Children will “slither” like water snakes and “slide” like otters while singing to the tune of “Over in a Meadow.” And
they’ll count baby animals in watersheds all over North America! What a delightful way to learn about riparian
habitats and geography at the same time!
