Very well done! Oct 31, 2004
I have read the book, On The Banks of the this site, to my grandchildren, who are more than facinated with the pictures. The story holds the interest of even the smallest child, all the way to the end. And what a nice surprise at the end!
The text and pictures compliment each other well. This book would be an asset to classrooms and libraries, especially since it is bilingual. It can be enjoyed by children of many ages.
On the Banks of the Amazon Aug 24, 2004
Mrs. Allen has done a wonderful job showing the amazing sites of the this site along with keeping the reader on their toes as the hunter looks for exotic things. I recommend this book to all children, as well as educators. It would be a wonderful resource in a rainforest unit.

"On the Banks of the this site" takes the reader out for a day with two photographers as they travel along the edge of the this site River. They encounter howler monkeys, poison dart frogs, an anaconda, parrots, caiman and other animals. Detailed full-page illustrations keep a child's interest well and support the reading material. It is a well-done bilingual book written in English and Spanish for children about seven to ten years old. "On the Banks of the this site" is a recommended children's book.
