All About The Great Lakes
By Maureen Dunphy
Illustrated by Amber Calderon
The Great Lakes are North America’s own inland seas. What surprises lurk hidden at the bottom of the Lakes or in their past? Pirates, shipwrecks, forests, and mysteries abound. Bordered by nine states or provinces, the Lakes hold 21% of the world’s fresh water. In this young reader’s book, Maureen lays out the history of the Great Lakes in its many facets. She includes geological, ecological, and human history. By weaving these all together, the author allows the reader to better understand the world’s largest group of freshwater lakes.
