The River that Wolves Moved: A True Tale from Yellowstone

Wolves are unlikely heroes in this charming picture book by Mary Kay Carson (Inside Biosphere 2), illustrated by David Hohn (Headstrong Hallie!). This nonfiction for young readers uses the familiar "House that Jack Built" nursery rhyme format to recount the 1995 reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park and the dramatic, far-reaching impact they had.

"This is the pack, so furry and fast,/ That hunts near the river that wolves moved." Beautiful full-color art shows the cascading positive effects of wolves on the park. The simple text is complemented by longer informative blocks of text on each double-page spread and backmatter, both of which make it adaptable for different age levels and attention spans. The River that Wolves Moved is an educational, timely and entertaining addition to children's nonfiction. --Kyla Paterno, freelance reviewer
