Mississippi Going North Hardcover – October 1, 1996
|New from||Used from|
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3?In this charming picture book, Baker takes a poetic look at life along the northern part of the Mississippi. This section of the river is not (as Baker points out) the Mississippi used to dramatic effect by Mark Twain and others. The text follows a family as they travel by canoe up the river, seeing a heron, deer, and loons along the way. However, the focus is not on the wildlife itself, but on the feelings nature evokes in people. The oil paintings are dramatic, yet lifelike. Focus is usually kept on the sights along the river, drawing attention to the animals. This is a title that might easily be used in a unit on nature study or to precede a nature walk. It will appeal to educators and browsers alike.?Melissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL
