Most of us think, at one time or another, that we’re no good at something, especially if that something is unfamiliar. The Biology Adventurers: On the River, sparks a little bit of curiosity and offers friendly encouragement that no good can be replaced with pretty fun! With accurate names and descriptions of the biological world, but a playful sense of adventure, I was reminded that biology begins right where my own toes end.

This book inspired me to challenge myself when there is something I don't think I can do. On the River is the perfect book for kids like me who are interested in science and learning about the world around them.
