A lesson in considering others’ needs …
It’s hot and Troo wants to go swimming! Now! But when he blocks off the river to make a small pool, the water stops flowing downstream. What will happen to the creatures that need the river to live?
This is a fun early reader with an easy to read and understand story. Filled with characters of animals we do not see in our everyday life it takes us half way around the world or more to Australia. Full of a lesson to think of and put others first Troo and his friends learn a lot. There are some environmental factors too. This could be a good one for Earth Day.
