PreS-Gr 3—A mother and child walk along a river and discuss various parts of the water cycle. The narrative is in a question-and-answer format, with the daughter asking and the mother answering. Most of the mother's answers present the concepts in fairly accessible terms. Water states, river flow, the water cycle, and erosion are all explained clearly. However, the conclusion may confuse some readers. The daughter's response ("I want to be good to the earth so our water can be here forever!") seems to contradict earlier material about how "the water you see is as old as the earth" and just gets redistributed. The illustrations are reminiscent of patchwork quilts, with plenty of intriguing details for young readers to examine. The organization allows for a few excerpts to be shared at a time—a good thing, because there's a lot of information here to soak up. VERDICT A strong addition to STEM collections for newly water curious children.—Rachel Anne Mencke, St. Matthew's Parish School, Pacific Palisades, CA
Catherine L. Weyerhaeuser s beautifully illustrated children s book Where Do Rivers Go, Momma? chronicles a delightful conversation between a little girl and her mom. As they walk along a mountain stream in a spring rain the little girl wonders, Where do Rivers go? How old is water? What happens when water soaks into the earth? Why are some places so wet and other places so dry? The answers to these questions explain the water cycle using pictures and language young children can easily understand. This informational picture book is perfect for ages 7 9.--Karen Nesbit --NSTA Recommends
Every child learns about the water cycle in school, and with the help of "Where Do Rivers Go, Momma?" they will come to love every aspect of it, from mighty rivers rushing downhill to the sea to rainbows formed by the sun shining on water droplets in the sky. Using pictures and language that children ages 6 to 9 will understand and enjoy, author and illustrator Catherine Weyerhaeuser combines her talents as a geologist, educator, and illustrator to describe how water moves around the Earth. Detailed illustrations of watery landscapes with lush ferns and aquatic creatures will thrill students in grades 1 to 4, and providing straightforward explanations of the water cycle, such as where water goes when it soaks into the ground, the final pages of "Where Do Rivers Go, Momma?" tell the stories of several well-known rivers and aquifers and the challenges we face in providing clean water to future generations. Beyond a simple teaching tool, Where Do Rivers Go, Momma? inspires its readers to become stewards of the blue planet making it a critically important and enduringly popular addition to family, school, and community library picture book science collections for young readers. --Midwest Book Review
