up the riverUp The River. New Zealand’s Rivers, Lakes & Wetlands by Gillian Candler & Ned Barraud. Pub. Potton & Burton, 2017.

The latest in the Explore & Discover series from these two writers this time about our waterways and wetlands and incidentally an election issue in New Zealand concerning the purity of our water systems and our pure green image.

The concern in this non fiction work is to show the plant, insect, fish and other animal life in a down water ride from mountain to sea. It shows the balance in the natural world, the water cycle and the threats to plants and animals in the system from farm waste and other pollutants.

It is still essentially a nature study and Ned Barraud’s digital and other illustrations highlight the amazing natural world of the water systems.

Another essential purchase for school libraries, no web page can cover the ground as well as this publication. Others in this series are reviewed on this blog.
