Over in a River, Flowing out to Sea is a fun sing-song book by Marianne Berkes, with illustrations by Jill Dubin all about the creatures that live in and around a river - specifically, the mamas and babies.
I love that the book includes so many opportunities for teachable moments. There are simple concepts, like counting and what noises animals make. The illustrations include the US map and children can learn about geography, too.
The prose is set to the rhythm of "Over in the Meadow" so it's a fun read, even the 24th time!
Of course, as with every book from Dawn Publications, this one comes with a plethora of extra activities making it especially ideal for teachers and homeschoolers. At the end of the book, there lots of resources, including more information about the animals and rivers in the book.
Online you'll find even tons of activities - check them all out!
See why I love these books so much?
