Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-2–This easy reader provides a pleasantly paced overview of the parameters of the Mississippi River and a history of the boats used to navigate its waters. While the text provides the proper names of the lakes and mountains, readers find out only that the Mississippi River came from an Indian word, mesipi. Since there is no one Native American language, it's unfortunate that the information isn't more specific. Wallace's simple color illustrations provide detail, e.g., showing readers what a keelboat or a flatboat looked like. Despite its shortcomings, this book presents a quick and accessible look at an often-studied topic.–Farida S. Dowler, Mercer Island Library, WA

My kids love all the books from this series. Colorful, engaging illustrations plus factual text mean the children will learn something. My only complaint is that I wish the books were longer.
