Pink Tree, Green Tree, Red Tree, White Tree

William Kayley (author)

Publisher: Blue Door Education ISBN: 9780983340720

An introductory book that presents the four seasons of the year in a simple, fun rhyming way. Great photos and illustrations.

River Song

Steve Van Zandt (author), Katherine Zecca (illustrator)

Publisher: Dawn Publications ISBN: 9781584693123

Rivers make beautiful music - from the trickle of snowmelt to the burble of a full-flowing stream. Here the famed children's musical ensemble, the Banana Slug String Band, celebrates rivers as a fascinating, ever-changing source of life and joy.

Pitter and Patter

Martha Sullivan (author), Cathy Morrison (illustrator)

Publisher: Dawn Publications ISBN: 9781584695103

Take a ride with Pitter on a water cycle! You'll go through a watershed, down, around and up again. How about going with Patter? You'll even go underground. Oh, the places you'll go and the creatures you'll see. A water drop is a wonderfully adventurous thing to be!

Over in the Arctic: Where the Cold Winds Blow

Marianne Berkes (author), Jill Dubin (illustrator)

Publisher: Dawn Publications ISBN: 9781584691846

Teachers and parents, here is another favorite from Marianne, who has a special talent. The kids think it is entertainment while teachers and parents think it is a great lesson about the Arctic! This book combines singing, counting, and full-body action with terrific cut-paper illustrations that kids will want to imitate. Over in the Arctic, the snow goose honks and the wolf howls. Children too will joyfully honk and howl while they count the baby animals and sing to the tune of Over in the Meadow. And they will hunt for hidden animals on each page. A big plus for educators are several pages of extension ideas for curriculum and art projects as well as resources on the web and elsewhere.

River Beds: Sleeping in the World's Rivers

Gail Langer Karwoski (author), Connie McLennan (illustrator)

Publisher: Arbordale Publishing ISBN: 9781607180326

This sequel to the award-winning Water Beds: Sleeping in the Ocean (2007 Teacher's Choice & 2005 Mom's Choice) takes readers on an around-the-world boat ride to learn how mammals sleep in or around nine major rivers of the world on all continents except Antarctica. Row down the Mississippi and watch two river otters slip into a hollow tree or look to the bank of the Brisbane River as a platypus pops into a hole and disappears into a narrow tunnel. Told in a soothing style, this book serves as a bedtime/naptime story for younger children or an animal geography book for older children. Adults may learn something, too! The "For Creative Minds" education section features a "World Map."
