KIRKUS REVIEW

Why and how a brook and its inhabitants do what they do is the subject of this fourth in Harriet Huntington's text with photographs series. Others have been on the seashore, the outdoors and the desert, with the latter as the least successful, but this seems to measure up nicely to the first two. As the water strider walks along the water's surface the dents of his foot marks make shadows on the brook's sandy bed on clear days; toad bugs look and hop like toads; when a brook reaches a mountain side it makes a waterfall. All these happenings are pictured nicely with pen and camera- so presented as to set a young watcher to seeing and hunting for more.
