The Great Lakes : our freshwater treasure / by Barb Rosenstock ; illustrated by Jamey Christoph.

Rosenstock, Barb, (author.). Christoph, Jamey, 1980- (illustrator.).

The Great Lakes - Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior - are five blue jewels in a belt across North America's middle. These enormous lakes hold one of the world's most precious resources: six quadrillion gallons of freshwater. Why did the Great Lakes form? When did they change? How do we keep this amazing treasure safe? Caldecott Honor author Barb Rosenstock and award-winning artist Jamey Christoph take us on a dramatic journey through this majestic system - tracing a drop of water down rivers, over falls, and through unique Great Lakes environments on its way to the Atlantic Ocean.
