    This is a review for Monday on the Mississippi by Marilyn Singer. This book is about the Mississippi River and they many towns that the river runs through. The book starts in Minnesota and ends in Louisiana where the river runs into the Gulf of Mexico. The book starts on a Monday and goes through Sunday and each day is a different stop in a different city that the river runs by. I enjoyed this book and the information that it provided. I found it really interesting because I am from Mississippi This is a review for Monday on the Mississippi by Marilyn Singer. This book is about the Mississippi River and they many towns that the river runs through. The book starts in Minnesota and ends in Louisiana where the river runs into the Gulf of Mexico. The book starts on a Monday and goes through Sunday and each day is a different stop in a different city that the river runs by. I enjoyed this book and the information that it provided. I found it really interesting because I am from Mississippi and liked that it mentioned places that I knew. This book would be good for upper elementary aged children but I think it would be difficult for a younger child to read. I loved the colors and detail of the illustrations and children would love the illustrations as well. I could use this book to target figurative language, literacy, and identifying colors.

    Picture book. This book takes us from the beginning to the end of the Mississippi in a creative way to explore the towns along the way. Great informative summary at the back of some of the history of the river.

    This was a lovely book about some of the towns that border the Mississippi. Each town features a vignette. Each vignette was a poem, but not a sing-songy, rhymey poem. The poems ebbed and flowed like the Mighty Mississippi itself.

    This was probably a good selection for a child a little older than a toddler, but it was fun to explore the journey of the Mississippi and comb the pages for things we could name. A perfect introduction to one of our most important waterways!

    This book is an adventure down the Mississippi river. It takes you through the days of the week, and through several stops down the river from the start of it in Minnesota, all the way to the mouth of the Mississippi river in LA.
